The Garda watchdog is investigating after a shooting involving an off-duty Garda last night.

The incident happened in the early hours of this morning on the Portobello Road at around 2 o clock this morning, when locals reported hearing shouting and a noise that sounded like a gunshot.

It's understood an off-duty Garda approached a group of men and told them to put their hands behind their head.

A shot was then fired, and a man was injured in the shoulder.

The case was referred to GSOC, who are at the scene which remains sealed off.
