Gardaí investigating a shooting incident that occurred in Carlow on December 5th last year have made a number of arrests as part of their investigation.
Searches were carried out earlier this morning in Waterford, Wexford, and Carlow. A total of five men were arrested by Gardaí.
Three of the men are aged in their 20s, one in his 30s, and the other in his 50s.
At approximately 6 pm on the evening in question, Gardaí were alerted after a number of shots were fired at a house in the Laurels Estate on Tullow Road.
A window to the front of the property was damaged but there were no reports of any injuries. It is understood those responsible fled from the scene in a car.
The scene was preserved and a technical examination took place, as did local authorities.
