Gardai in Ronanstown are investigating an incident where shots were fired at a house in the Quarryvale area of Dublin late last night.

The incident occurred at Greenfort Crescent at 9.20pm.

There was extensive damage caused to the ground floor living room window as well as the front door of the property in the attack.

Local reports say a gang of young men gained access to the house and caused damage to its interior in the incident also.

The scene remained sealed off by gardai this morning in preparation for a forensic examination by members of the garda technical bureau.

There were no reports of injuries in the incident and it is unclear if there was anyone in the house at the time of the attack.

The three main glass panes in the front window were all smashed up in the attack, and the glass in the front door was also smashed.

A garda spokesperson said: "Gardaí are appealing for witnesses following a shooting incident in Clondalkin on Tuesday 13th October, 2020.

"Damage was caused to the windows and exterior of the house. It's understood those involved fled the scene on foot. None of the occupants of the house were injured.

"In a follow up operation a man in his 20s was arrested near the scene by members of the Armed Support Unit (ASU) a short time later. He is currently detained under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939 at Ronanstown Garda Station.

"The scene has been preserved for forensic and technical examination.

"Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact the incident room at Ronanstown Garda Station 01-6667700 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111."
