FOUR PEOPLE ARRESTED in connection with a shooting in Lucan in Dublin have been released without charge.

The shooting occurred at Griffeen Glen Park at 1.50pm yesterday. 

A man in his early 40s was shot a number of times while in his car. He was removed to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown, where he is in a stable condition. 

The suspects fled the scene in a White Volkswagen Caddy van which was found burnt out at Elm Way, Lucan. 

They are then believed to have transferred to an Opel Vectra which was later located on Liffey Road, Liffey Valley Park, Lucan, after being set alight. 

It is understood that the suspects then fled the scene in a Toyota Avensis which was discovered on fire at Blind Lane in Fassaroe, Bray, Co Wicklow.
