Gardaí Appeal For Information After Garda Shooting Results In Death Of A Man

An appeal has been launched for witnesses to a Garda shooting which left a man in his late 20s dead in Dublin yesterday.

George Nkencho was shot in a Hartstown housing estate after members of the force responded to reports of a man with a knife in a local shopping centre.

Bullets were fired from an official Garda firearm after the man made several threats and an attempt to resolve the situation with non-lethal force failed.

He was taken to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown where he was pronounced dead.
