Man charged in connection with Limerick shooting

A man has been charged in connection with the shooting and wounding of a man in Limerick City last Saturday.

Jason Frenye (aged 22) of no fixed abode, appeared before a special sitting of Limerick District Court in Kilmallock, charged with possession of a sawn-off shotgun, with intent to endanger life.

He was also charged with possession of a single ammunition cartridge, with intent to endanger life.

The victim sustained wounds to his hands and legs after a gunman cycled up to him in broad daylight and opened fire on him.

The court granted the accused free legal aid and remanded him in custody to appear before the District Court in Limerick next Thursday.
