An investigation is underway after a shooting incident outside a Fermanagh hotel.

Four armed men wearing balaclavas arrived at a hotel in Main Street, Belleek shortly before 9.30am.

They fired one shot into the van of a contractor working there.

 There was no one in the van at the time and no one sustained any injuries - but police say all those involved were shaken by the incident.

The men are all described as wearing dark-coloured overalls, with white stripes.

They then made off in a black-coloured Ford Escort car in the direction of the border.

A car matching the description was discovered on fire a short time later in the Derrynacross Road area of Garrison.

It is believed the four men then left in a second, unknown vehicle.

PSNI officers say they are working closely with An Garda Síochana to trace their movements.

They are appealing to anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area, or anyone who has any information, to contact police at Enniskillen.
