A woman has been killed in a shooting in Tallaght in Dublin.

A second woman, believed to be in her 30s, and a man were injured in the incident.

The shooting happened at a house in Killinarden Place before 4pm.

It is understood that a man went into a house and shot dead a woman in her 60s and shot her daughter in the face.

The man is believed to be known to the women but is not a relative.

The injured woman was taken to Tallaght Hospital. Her injuries are not life-threatening.

The gunman was reportedly attacked by neighbours.
