Teen faced threat of being shot

a 16-YEAR-OLD Dublin boy, who was driven out of his locality because of his criminal activities, is to be sentenced next month.

The teenager's drug-fuelled anti-social behaviour has led to threats he would be shot or decapitated, the Dublin Children's Court has been told.

He has pleaded guilty to theft, burglary and attempted burglary charges as well as knife possession and criminal damage in connection with incidents in west Dublin on three dates in August and September last year.
