The youth had left the scene and there were no reported injuries.

During search operations involving local Garda Units, Emergency Response Unit, Garda Dog Unit and Air Support Unit, two firearms (ballistic examination pending) were recovered.

A male aged in his teens was later arrested in the Inchicore area.

He is currently detained under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939 at Kevin Street Garda Station.
