An American student in his 20s was injured during a shooting attack on the South Circular Road last night.
The innocent bystander was hit during a failed assassination attempt on another man, who is thought to be a senior associate of the Hutch family, Dublin Live reports.
Others ran for cover as shots were fired near the National Stadium, where a boxing tournament was taking place.
Gardai arrived at the scene at about 9.44pm and discovered the two men with "non life-threatening" injuries.
The student was injured in the hand, while the intended target was hurt in the leg.
They were both taken to St James's Hospital for treatment.
Gardai are looking for a dark-coloured car that was seen fleeing the incident.
