Gardaí appeal for information on 'callous' shooting of woman in Dublin

A 77-year-old woman remains in hospital this morning after a shooting incident in Dublin on Thursday night.

She was shot in the leg by a lone gunman who knocked on her door on Oliver Plunkett Avenue in Monkstown.

Gardaí have described it as a callous attack and are appealing to anyone with information to contact them.

Superintendent Martin Fitzgerald said: "In terms of description, what we're working with at this moment in time is a male, dressed in dark clothing, we have no assessment as to what age, and a height description of between 5' 7" and 5' 10"."
