A man who survived a shooting in Tallaght in Dublin yesterday has been described as 'very very lucky.'

He was sitting in a car in the Killinarden area at around 6.20 last evening when he was attacked with a high-power, low-precision sub machine gun.

It's understood he was hit at least once, but his injuries have been described as non life threatening.

The man in his 30s was treated at the scene and was then taken by ambulance to Tallaght Hospital.

Gardaí at Tallaght Garda Station are urging anyone with information or camera footage to come forward.

No arrests have been made.

Lucky Man

Michael O'Toole, Crime Correspondent with the Daily Star, says the attack is believed to be part of an ongoing feud:

"He's a very lucky man, he was shot at several times with an Uzi sub machine gun as he sat in a car in Killinarden yesterday evening."

Gardaí have confirmed the victim's injuries are not life threatening, Michael says he's a "very lucky man."

It's understood he's also "very well known" to Gardaí.
