Speculation that Irish gun attack linked to door-to-door textile collection rivalry

A gun attack which took place in South Dublin on 11 March, has been linked to a rivalry in the door-to-door collection of second-hand clothes by the Irish media.

The attack happened in Aiken Village, Stepaside where two men were injured and another seriously injured. According to the Irish Times, a 38-year-old man was shot five times before his 17-year-old son managed to tackle the gunman.  The men were all taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital.

The gunman and the 38-year-old injured man are both believed to be from Lithuania. The injured man is expected to survive.

The attack occurred at 8.25am and the Gardai, the local police force, held a press briefing later that day.  A man in his 40s was arrested in connection to the shooting the same day.
