Merseyside Police is investigating after shots were fired at a house in Sefton on Tuesday night (26 March).
Officers were called to Dapple Heath Avenue in the L31 area at around 10.10pm following reports of damage caused to a house.
On arrival they found damage to a front window but no-one inside was hurt.
The scene was cordoned off and house-to-house enquiries carried out.
Detectives are keen to trace a silver Ford Fiesta which was seen in Dapple Heath Avenue at around the time of the shooting.
Supt Kevin Johnson said: “The actions of the people responsible are reckless in the extreme. They have discharged a gun at a house in a busy residential area and with people inside. It is fortunate that no-one was injured or killed.
“The occupants have been left extremely shaken up and our investigation will try to establish why this property was shot at.
“We will relentlessly pursue criminals who use firearms on our streets and I would call on anyone with information to come forward and share it with us so that we can take action.”
Call Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
