Via RTÉ News:

A man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of 36-year-old Sandra Boyd, who was shot dead at her parent’s home in Dublin on Saturday night

Gardaí suspect that someone in the house had access to an illegal firearm and that Ms Boyd may have intervened before she was shot.

A number of people were in the house at the time of the shooting and gardaí had been looking to speak to one person in particular who knew Ms Boyd and who left the house after the shooting.

Gardaí are also investigating if shots fired at a nearby house in a separate shooting incident last Tuesday were intended for the house where the firearm was found.

Gardai at the scene on lands in Lugmore in the Mount Seskin area, where a man was seriously injured in a shooting on farmland at around 1pm this afternoon. He was taken to Tallaght University Hospital, where his condition is described as serious. It is believed he had been shot in the head. The scene has been preserved for a forensic examination.

Meanwhile…

…via Irish Times:

While the investigation into the incident is at an early stage, gardaí believe the injured man may have been on privately owned farm lands, with his dog, in the area when a dispute broke out.

A dog, believed to be owned by the injured man, was also shot during the incident, which is not regarded as being related to gangland or organised crime.

Gardaí are instead trying to establish if the man who fired the shot had challenged the injured man about why he was in the area.
