Man dies after Dublin pub shooting

A 22-year-old man has died after being shot in a Dublin pub, gardai said.

Another man, aged 21, was injured in the attack in Inchicore.

A lone gunman entered the Black Horse Inn in Tyrconnell Road shortly after midnight and opened fire at the two men.

The attacker then left the pub and walked across the road before turning back and shooting at the outside of the bar, but no one else was hit. Gardai said it is not known what direction the gunman then took.

One seriously injured man was rushed to hospital, where he later died. It is understood the other man's injuries are not life-threatening.

Just over an hour before the fatal shooting, gardai said there was a separate incident involving firearms at the same pub.

A red car drove into the car park at around 11.10pm and two armed men got out and entered the bar. Gardai said they appeared to be looking for a number of individuals.

They then left the premises and drove away in the direction of Bluebell. No shots were fired in this earlier incident.

The pub and surrounding area has been sealed off pending a Garda forensic technical examination.

Officers have appealed for witnesses to either incident to come forward.
