Gardaí were attacked by a dog inside a house where they were carrying out a search under a warrant.

The dog received vetinary treatment but did not survive its injuries.

The Coolock Detective Unit and the DMR Armed Support Unit were searching a house in Coburg Place, Dublin 1.

They discovered “a quantity of controlled drugs with an approximate street value of €5,000″.

A man, 40s, was arrested and is currently detained at Coolock Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act (1984).

In a statement, the gardaí said: “During the operation an official firearm was discharged when Gardaí were attacked by a dog inside the house. The dog received veterinary treatment but didn’t survive the injuries sustained.”

“Scenes of Crime Unit have attended the premises to carry out an examination,” gardaí said.

As an official firearm was discharged the incident has been notified to the Garda Síochana Ombudsman Commission.

The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission  (GSOC) confirmed to TheJournal.ie that it “has received notification of a firearm discharge close to Five Lamps in Dublin involving a Garda incident”.

“Further information is awaited from the Garda Síochána,” GSOC said
