Man shot at as he arrives home

More details are emerging today on the apparent shooting incident which we reported on last night.

GardaĆ­ have confirmed the incident took place and have said that two gunmen who had apparently been lying in wait for a man, opened fire on him as he was returning to his house in the Kilteragh housing estate in Dooradoyle around 11.30pm.

Up to 6 shots were fired in the attack which saw the mans house and car being struck but amazingly he was not hit.GardaĆ­ say the man who is in his thirties is very fortunate not to have been killed or seriously injured.
