A man who had been living in Northern Ireland has been shot in north Dublin.

The victim, aged in his late 20s, was rushed to hospital following the gun attack at a petrol station on the Clonshaugh Road at about 1.30pm.

Gardai said a black car was seen leaving the area following the shooting.

It is understood the man was shot a number of times, but that he was able to speak when emergency services arrived at the scene.

Detectives appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
