Gardaí in Dublin are appealing for witnesses following a shooting incident in the north of the city.

In a so-called drive-by incident, shots were fired into a house in Cabra just before 10pm on Saturday.  

At least four shots were fired through the front windows of the house on St Attracta Road.

None of the three people inside the house at the time were injured.

Gardaí carried out searches in the area last night and the scene was preserved for a forensic examination.

Gardaí at Mountjoy are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them.

A black car, possibly an Alfa Romeo, was seen driving away from the scene at speed.

A cache of guns was found on waste ground behind the house several years ago and a man was jailed for four years.

Detectives are trying to establish a motive for the gun attack and are examining a number of lines of inquiry, including the possibilities that it could be linked to a local dispute or connected to the Hutch-Kinahan feud.
