A MAN IS still being questioned over a shooting last night in which a woman died and another woman was seriously inured.

The 60-year-old woman – named locally as Mary Dargan – was killed following a shooting in a house in the Killinarden area of Tallaght yesterday afternoon, while another woman in her 30s, believed to be the victim’s daughter, was injured.

She was taken to Tallaght Hospital with gunshot wounds. Her injuries are not life-threatening.

Today, gardaí said that a man in his 50s who was arrested yesterday is still in custody.

He was taken to St James’ Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and detained under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act, 1939.

The Irish Mail said this morning that during the incident a young girl was thrown out of a downstairs window by her mother – the younger woman – when the man entered their home with a gun.

The young girl is believed to be four years of age.
