Appeal After Man Shot In Dublin

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses after a man was shot in the Lucan area of Dublin yesterday, Wednesday 04 September.

It is understood a third vehicle was then used, a Toyota Avensis, which was discovered on fire at Blind Lane, Fassaroe, Bray.

No arrests have been made as yet. Anyone with information or relevant dash cam footage can contact the incident room at Lucan Garda station on 01 666 7300, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
