Manhunt underway in South Wicklow after shots fired at Garda car during chase
A manhunt is underway across South Wicklow after a shot was fired at a garda patrol car this morning.
Gardai were responding to a report of suspicious activity at Craanford, near Gorey in Wexford earlier this morning. As the gardai approached the suspicious car – a black Skoda Fabia, the two men who were inside the car sped off.
Gardai went in pursuit of the vehicle. During the course of the chase a shot was fired at the Garda car. None of the gardai were injured, but they were forced to halt their pursuit.
The car was last seen in the Gorey area.
Members of the public have been asked not to approach these men if they see them and to instead dial 999.
More details to follow.
