TWO men have been blasted in separate horror shotgun attacks in less than 12 hours.
The first victim was shot in a Dublin street on Friday afternoon.
A second man was targeted at a house in Cork in the early hours of Saturday.
Gardai are investigating both of the violent attacks.
He was taken to the capital’s Mater Hospital for treatment and it is understood his injuries are not life-threatening.
Another man was hurt in the incident and two men in their 20s were arrested.
They are being held at Finglas Garda station under the provisions of Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939.
The scene was preserved to allow for a forensic examination.
Shortly after 4am on Saturday in Churchfield Avenue, Cork, a man in his 20s was blasted with a shotgun at a house.
Gardai and emergency services were alerted to the shooting.
The victim was taken by ambulance to Cork University Hospital for treatment.
His injures are not thought to be life threatening.
The scene was cordoned off this afternoon during a hunt for evidence.
Gardai said no arrests had been made and appealed for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
A spokesman said: “They are particularly keen for anyone with camera footage (including dash-cam) to make this available to investigating Gardai.”
