Latest: A Dublin City Councillor says gun crime is becoming all too common in communities throughout the capital.
A number of gunshots were fired in the Woodlands Estate on the Blakestown Road in the early hours of yesterday morning.
Gardaí say they found several spent shotgun cartridges in a follow-up search of the area.
No one was injured in the incident, but Sinn Fein Councillor Daithi Doolan said the Government must act urgently to stamp out gun crime.
He said: "It's becoming all too common that there are gun attacks in our communities. It's wrong and it needs to be stopped.
