Upon arrival, they discovered a man, aged in his 20s, with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man's body was removed from the scene and a post-mortem examination was due to take place on Sunday evening by chief state pathologist Dr Linda Mulligan at the City Morgue in Whitehall. Gardaí said specific detail of the post-mortem will not be released for operational reasons.
