A MAN IN his 20s is due in court this morning after shots were fired at Gardaí in Cork on Friday night

The man was arrested following the incident, which occurred at Military Road, Cork at 11.40pm on Friday, and has now been charged. 

A previous statement said that when Gardaí arrived at the scene, a man fired a number of shots at them.

The car was brought to a halt on the toll plaza on the M8 Northbound after midnight, after a stinger device was used. 

The man left the vehicle and fired more shots at gardaí.
