Man arrested after pulling out “gun” on the Dart

A man in his 40s has been arrested and is currently detained in Store Street Garda Station in Dublin 1 following an incident on the Dart.

Reports indicate that the man pulled what appeared to be a gun and pointed it at another passenger on the train as it was travelling from Connolly to Tara St station.

The alarm was raised by commuters who were in the carriage prompting the gardai to send armed officers to take the man into custody.

Sources have confirmed that the “gun” is more likely to be a pellet or replica firearm.
