Gardaí have arrested five people in relation to a shooting incident that occurred on Eugene Street in Dublin 8 on February 24th.
Officers arrested four men aged in their 20s and another male juvenile this morning, following a number of searches in Dublin.
All five are currently detained under the provisions of Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 at a number of Garda stations in Dublin. They can be held for up to seven days.
In a statement, gardaí said investigations are ongoing.
The shooting incident on Eugene Street in late February saw a male youth receive a number of gunshot wounds at around 10:55pm.
The Irish Times previously reported that gardaí believe the shooting of the 17-year-old was a failed murder attempt.
The teenager was getting into a taxi when a number of men approached him and opened fire, in what gardaí believe was a pre-planned and targeted attack.
While the victim has survived the shooting there were grave concerns for his life after he received a number of gunshot wounds, including a wound in the neck.
He was taken to St James Hospital to be treated for serious injuries.
