Louth shooting: Gardaí eager to interview injured man

Gardaí are hoping to speak to a man, who was injured in a shooting in Co Louth on Friday night, as soon as they can.

Twenty-year-old Stephen Hanaphy from Coolock in Dublin died in the attack which happened at the Sliabh Breagh estate in Ardee.

Detectives believe a gang smashed in back windows and forced their way into the house before a number of shots were fired at the intruders from either a handgun or rifle.

A man in his 20s, who was arrested in Dublin yesterday on suspicion of aggravated burglary at the house in Ardee, has been released without charge.
