Children targeted in shooting: report

More details are coming to light about the shooting incident that took place last night in Garryowen.

Tonight’s Chronicle is reporting that two children were in fact the intended target of the drive by shooting which occurred around 9.10pm last night and the incident is thought to be related to the city’s ongoing family feud.

The children targeted were between the ages of 8 and 12 years old and were standing outside a house on the Claughaun road when a car pulled up and two shots were discharged in their direction, however nobody was hurt. Apparently the children were seen as a target because they are related to people aligned to one side of the feud.

The car used in the drive-by, a BMW was found burnt out in Ballyclough late last night. Gardai say they received no official complaint but were investigating the shooting.
