A family of five have escaped injury after shots were fired at the bedroom window of a house in County Tyrone.

Two men, two women and a child were in the house on the Glen Road in Coalisland when two shots were fired at 07:35 GMT on Saturday.

Police said two men, believed to be involved, later attempted to hijack a car before making off on foot.
