A MAN (30s) WHO was arrested by gardaí in connection with a number of incidents that resulted in the death of a man (50s) in Dublin in the early hours yesterday has been released without charge.

Just after midnight yesterday, the man in his 50s received serious injuries after he was struck by a van which failed to remain at the scene on Tymon Road North in Tallaght. He was later pronounced dead in Tallaght Hospital. 

Gardaí had earlier received reports of shots fired at a residence in the area. 

A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in respect of the man in his 30s who was arrested by gardaí in connection with the incidents.

Any witnesses to these incidents are still being urged to come forward.

Gardaí are particularly keen on information on a dark-coloured hatchback car that was seen leaving the area around the same time.
