Update: The man is reported to be in a stable condition in hospital after he was shot in west Dublin.
An investigation is underway after a man was seriously injured in a shooting incident in Dublin.
It happened at around 5.30pm yesterday evening in Mulhuddart. The man, who is in his 30s, has been taken to hospital in a serious condition.
He was shot twice after being approached by two men wearing balaclavas.
Local Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Donnelly said it is the latest escalation in ongoing, violent feuding in the area:
“It’s really shocking that on a beautiful Saturday evening that we are faced with another person who has been seriously injured in the Mulhuddart area.”
Two cars were later removed from the scene of the shooting and Garda forensics teams are examining a burned out car found nearby in the Huntstown area.
It remains unclear if both sites are connected. Investigations are continuing.
