Dublin shootings: Gardaí investigate two separate gun attacks with associate of gang boss ‘Mr Flashy’ shot in Finglas
6th December 2022
Gardaí are investigating two separate serious gun attacks in Dublin this evening.
Meanwhile, one of Ireland’s most notorious criminals was targeted in another attempted shooting incident in the south-east of the country tonight.
The unrelated Dublin shootings in Finglas and Clondalkin were carried out around an hour apart and have left two men injured, one seriously.
The first shooting was reported outside a store on Cardiffsbridge Road in Finglas at around 9pm.
A man, aged in his early 20s, suffered at least one gunshot wound but was not seriously hurt.
It’s understood the man is a close associate of the gang boss known as ‘Mr Flashy’, who has been involved in feuding in the area previously.
The individual targeted this evening has also been investigated for feud-related violence.
Shortly after the targeted shooting, a car was found burnt out in the Berryfield area.
Gardaí in Finglas are investigating that incident and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Less than an hour later gardaí at Ronanstown were alerted to reports of a shooting in the Clondalkin area.
It’s understood one man has suffered serious injuries and emergency services are currently at the scene.
Gardaí do not believe the two incidents are related and separate investigations are underway into both shootings.
Separately, one of Ireland’s most notorious criminals was targeted in an attempted shooting incident in the south-east tonight.
