Dissident republicans were blamed after three police vehicles were struck by a number of shots in the Ardoyne area.
The attack happened as officers were travelling along the Crumlin Road near Brompton Park at around 7pm.
Police said military grade weapons were used in the attack and branded it as "madness".
On Sunday police said they had arrested a 34-year-old man in connection with the attack.
He has been taken to Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning.
