Prison dash after Dublin shooting

A man has driven himself to a prison for help after he was injured in a gun attack in Dublin.

The shooting happened on Sarsfield Road, Ballyfermot, at about 11.10pm on Tuesday.

The victim, a 32-year-old, was hit in the side of his body as he sat in a car outside Finnegan's pub.

He drove himself to nearby Cloverhill Prison, where he called for help.

He was taken to Tallaght Hospital, where his injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.

The gunman fled in a silver saloon car that was later found burnt out at Golden Bridge Terrace, Inchicore.

The car has been seized for a technical and forensic examination.
