Gardai have launched an inquiry after a man in his sixties escaped a shooting at a Dublin housing estate.

Shots were fired at the man shortly after 7pm last night, as he sat in a car at Rathbeale Crescent in Swords.

A black Audi - which Gardai believe was used in the shooting - was found on fire a short time later, on a back road near Dublin Airport.

Gardai in Swords are appealing for information.
