A man is fighting for life in hospital after he was shot in Dublin last night.
He was hit several times during the attack, which happened in Clondalkin.
The latest victim of gun crime in the capital is a 30-year-old man who was set upon in the driveway of a house on Foxdene Park in Clondalkin just after 8.30pm yesterday.
The man had just alighted from a car when he was approached by a lone gunman armed with a handgun.
The victim was shot several times in the shoulder and head. He was brought to Tallaght hospital, where his condition is described as serious.
So far, nobody has been arrested in connection with the attack.
