Gardaí are investigating a shooting in Dublin late last night in which a man was injured.

It happened in a garden outside a house off Balbutcher Lane in Ballymun at around 11pm.

At least five shots were fired and the victim, who is in his late 20s, was struck at least twice.

An ambulance, an advanced paramedic and a fire crew were called to the scene.

He was rushed to the Mater hospital in Dublin city centre where his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

Shortly before 11.30pm, an ambulance was seen driving away from the area with its blue lights on, followed closely by an unmarked garda car with blue lights flashing.
