TWO MEN PRESENTED to the same fire station over the weekend, both apparently having been shot.

Gardaí this morning confirmed that the men had been treated for “what appeared to be gunshot wounds”.

However, the Garda Press Office could not confirm reports that the two men were brothers, or that they had been involved in a gangland punishment shooting.

Late on Friday night, a 32-year-old man arrived at North Strand Fire Station with what appeared to be a gun shot wound. The man was then brought to the Mater Hospital.

The following night a 23-year-old man showed up at the same station with similar injuries.

Gardaí confirmed that the incident is being investigated by gardaí at Mountjoy. Anyone with information is asked to call Mountjoy station on 01-66 8600, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any Garda station.
