A man has been arrested after firing a pellet gun at Gardaí in a house in Longford.

Officers called to the house in Edgeworthstown this morning to execute a number of court orders.

They say a man in his 30s in the house discharged what's believed to be a pellet gun, on a number of occasions, at the unarmed uniform Gardaí.

He then fled the scene, before being located with the help of the Armed Support Unit. 

He's being questioned at a Garda station in Longford, where he can be held for up to 24 hours.

Three Gardaí received minor injuries - however, they didn't require immediate medical treatment.
