Pair held over cleared man shooting

A man and a woman have been arrested over the shooting of a man who had been acquitted of murder.

Declan O'Reilly, from Crumlin in south Dublin, was shot three times in a laneway behind a car garage in Harold's Cross on September 20.

The 31-year-old was cleared in February this year of stabbing an inmate at Mountjoy Prison to death in June 2007.

A man in his 20s and a woman in her 30s were arrested on Thursday morning in south Dublin.

The suspects were detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act at Terenure and Rathmines Garda Stations.
