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.
