Two men in thir late 20s have been arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting in Dublin.

A 16-year-old boy was seriously injured in the incident in the Crumlin area last night.

The Justice Minister Alan Shatter is condemning the gun attack describing it as ‘callous’.

At around 9pm last night a number of people were standing outside a house on Lismore Road when a number of shots were fired from what us described as a passing black-coloured saloon car.

A 16-year-old boy was injured in the attack suffering gun shot wounds to his back.

He was rushed by ambulance to St James Hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

His injuries are not life-threatening.

And Alan Shatter says the attack showed a similar callousness.
