TWO young boys were asleep in a house when a gunman fired a shotgun blast through the front window.

Last night, gardai were trying to establish why the armed thug targeted the terraced home in the south Dublin suburb of Drimnagh.

The shooting followed a row on Kilworth Road, Drimnagh late on Monday night.

A man, the father of the two sleeping boys, and an elderly woman were in the front room of the house on Kilworth Road when the incident happened.

No one was injured in the attack.

When gardai arrived, a 4x4 fled the scene and a handgun was thrown from it. A sawn-off shotgun was also found on the road. It is understood another car also fled the scene.
