Limerick brothers arraigned in shooting case

Two brothers have appeared in court charged in connection with a shooting incident which left a six year old girl injured earlier this year.

At their arraignment today 27 year old Paul Curtin and 38 year old Christopher Curtin both pleaded guilty to charges of suspicious possession of a twelve gauge shotgun and possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life at Lilac Court on the 31st of May.

Their uncle, 44 year old Eric Curtin also pleaded guilty to the possession of the shotgun on the same date.

The young girl was injured and two cars were damaged when 2 shots were discharged in the shooting incident. A pellet had ricocheted from one of the cars striking the 6 year old girl in the leg while she played in a front garden nearby.

All three will appear before Limerick Circuit Court again for sentencing on the 23rd of January.
