Three men have been arrested following an incident in Kildare last night in which shots were fired at a Garda.
A burglary took place in Tipperary last night, involving a gang travelling in a high-spec car.
A shot-gun was among the items stolen.
At 9.30pm Gardaí observed a black Audi estate car with a partial registration number 151 G driving at speed through Monasterevin over the draw bridge, Main St and on towards the Kildare Rd.
The black Audi was then observed by a Garda unit at Ashgrove.
Gardai pursued and the car stopped at Larch Hill.
The front seat male passenger exited the car produced what Gardaí believe was a shotgun and discharged a shot.
