TWO MEN HAVE been arrested after a man in his 20s was shot in a supermarket car park in the St Margaret’s Road area of Finglas earlier this evening.

Gardaí and emergency services were called to the scene in the North Dublin suburb at around 5pm.

The man was discovered with what gardaí described in a statement tonight as an apparent gunshot wound. It’s understood he was shot in the leg.
