A man aged 36 has died after a shooting incident which occurred in Clondalkin, Dublin shortly before 10pm last night.

It's believed that the victim was shot up to five times, and was attended to by emergency services at the scene on Wheatfields Avenue where he was later pronounced dead.

It's understood that the man was known to the gardai, and was out on bail for gun offences at the time of the attack.
