Man Injured In Shooting Incident In Coolock

Gardaí have appealed for information on a shooting incident at Belcamp Crescent in Coolock shortly before midnight on Wednesday 29 March.

A 45-year-old man suffered an apparent gunshot wound to his leg when a man forced entry to his house and discharged a firearm. He received medical assistance at the scene before being taken to Beaumont Hospital with non life threatening injuries. No other injuries have been reported.

The suspect, described as being a young man, 5'7" in height, wearing a balaclava, a navy coloured hooded top, black gloves and black runners, fled from the scene on foot to an awaiting car.

A second car, a green coloured Honda CRV with a partial registration number 99 D was also later located close to Shamrock Cottages in the North Strand area. Both vehicles have been seized for technical examination and scenes have been preserved.

Investigations are on-going and no arrests have been made.
