One woman said she heard a loud bang at around 3.20am.

She said: "It's scary. I live just up the road and walked past this morning with my kids and they saw the gunshot holes in the window and asked what they were. How do I explain it to them?"

Crime scene investigators arrived at the property earlier today to examine the crime scene.

Coun Maroof, who represents Nether Edge and Sharrow, has not yet issued a statement about the incident.
