Gardaí are continuing to question two people arrested last night in connection with the murder of a 17-year-old in Co Meath.

The two, a man and woman, are being held at Clondalkin Garda station in Dublin.

The teenager, who was originally from Nigeria, has been named as Sumbo Owoiya of The Court, Dunboyne Castle, Dunboyne Co. Meath.

Mr Owoiya was alone in the apartment in Dunboyne when a shot was fired through its front door, hitting him in the stomach.

He died later in hospital.

Gardaí added that some previous media reports with regard to the victim were erroneous. They said Mr Owoiya was not being sought by the gardaí in relation to any alleged incident or investigation.
