Update 14:30

Two men remain in a stable condition in St. James's hospital this afternoon after being shot in Dublin.

It happened just before 10pm last night near the National Stadium on the South Circular Road.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to the shooting, which happened during the juvenile boxing championships.

A man in his 40s and a man in his 20s were injured in the attack. Both men were taken to St James’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The older man in was injured in the leg, while the man in his 20s suffered an injury to his hand.

Stephen Breen, crime editor with the Irish Sun, said the gunman fled the scene:

“The gunman was then seen running from the scene and he got into a dark coloured car which was later found burned out in the Finglas area,” he said.

“It is a very, very serious situation.

“Gardaí have launched a full investigation from Kevin Street and thankfully no-one has been seriously hurt.”

The attack is believed to have taken place before 10pm last night – with gardaí responding to reports of gunfire at around 9:44pm.

The South Circular Road will remain closed until further notice from Donore Avenue to Leonards Corner as gardaí undertake a technical examination.

An incident room has been established at Kevin Street Garda Station and Gardaí wish to appeal for witnesses or to anyone who can assist with the investigation to contact Kevin Street Garda Station on 01 6669400, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
