A man has died while in garda custody in Dublin.

Gardaí said a silver Volvo S40 crashed into a steel barrier at Limekiln Avenue in Walkinstown at around 9pm.

A man, believed to be the driver of the car, then forced his way into two houses on Templemanor Drive - close to the scene of the crash.

Gardaí said the man became aggressive when officers arrived on the scene, adding that he was arrested and restrained.

A garda spokesperson said the man “became unresponsive” as he was being removed from the house – adding that medical assistance was then requested.

He was taken to Tallaght Hospital and was later pronounced dead. 

A post mortem examination will be carried out this morning by the State Pathologist Professor Marie Cassidy.

The matter has been referred to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC).

Forensic investigators are examining the scene of the crash and the house where the man was arrested.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who witnessed the initial crash on Limekiln Ave or who may have been in the Templemanor area between 9pm and 10pm on 22nd September to contact them at Crumlin Garda Station on 01 666 6200.
