TWO TEENAGERS HAVE been arrested by gardaí investigating an incident where gunshots were fired at a garda patrol car in Dublin last year. 

The incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday, 24 July 2021 in the Rossfield Avenue area of Tallaght.

A marked garda car was on patrol in the area, when they came across three males, one in possession of a handgun and one in possession of a baseball bat.

The male armed with the handgun discharged a number of shots towards the garda patrol car. One of these shots struck the vehicle.

All three men then fled the scene and no gardaí were injured during this incident.

This evening, one man (aged in his late teens) and one male teenager have been arrested by investigating gardaí.
