Gardai are investigating a drive-by shooting which happened outside a west Dublin gym last night.

No one was injured in the brazen attack, which happened at Church Road, Mulhuddart, at around 9.30pm.

Officers said two cars were involved but it was unclear if shots had been fired from both vehicles.

However, a source said that at least five shots were fired into one of the cars from the occupant of a black Lexus car, which pulled up beside the other car and sped from the scene after the shooting.

The incident is being treated as being part of the out-of-control Corduff feud, which has led to numerous attacks this year - including an attempted murder outside a school and a sustained garda response.

Targeted

An occupant of the car targeted by the shooter in the Lexus is a criminal aged in his 20s who is considered one of the feud's main protagonists.

No arrests were made last night.

A car is believed to have been found burnt out in Finglas after the attack.
