Gardaí at Tallaght are appealing for witnesses following a number of incidents which resulted in the death of a man at a housing estate in Tymon Road North, Tallaght, Dublin 24, in the early hours of Monday, 10th August, 2020.

Shortly before midnight on Sunday, 9th August, 2020, Gardaí received reports of shots being fired at a residence in the area. No injuries were reported during this incident.

Following a further incident outside this residence, a man in his 50s was struck by a van which failed to remain at the scene.

The offending vehicle was later located by Gardaí at Tymonville Gardens. A man in his early 30s was arrested nearby. He is currently being detained at Tallaght Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
