Man Due In Court After Midlands Shooting Incident That Left Three Gardaí Injured

Gardaí initially called to a house to execute a number of court orders.

A man in his 30s has been charged in relation to a shooting incident in which three Gardaí were injured in the midlands. 

It happened yesterday morning in Longford.

Gardai called to a house in Edgeworthstown to execute a number of court orders.

Shortly after officers arrived at the home, a man present allegedly fired what is believed to be a pellet gun a number of times at unarmed Gardai.

Three Gardai received minor injuries, and are being provided with welfare supports.

The man in his 30s then fled the scene and was subsequently arrested after follow up searches by the Air Support Unit.

He has since been charged, and will appear before Athlone District Court this morning.
