A garda investigation is under way after shots were fired at a house in west Dublin on Thursday night.

Gardai were called to the scene of the incident in the Adamstown area of Lucan at 9.50pm after receiving reports of gunfire.

It is believed a number of shots were discharged and one bullet was later discovered lodged in a window.

However, no injuries were reported and the scene was preserved pending a technical examination.

A garda cordon remained in place at the scene on Castlegate Square yesterday morning as members of the Divisional Search Team carried out examinations of the area.

Focused

Their searches were focused on the green area outside the property where a number of bushes are located.

A garda spokesman said that investigations into the incident were ongoing.
