Male Sustains Gunshot Wound At Tipperary Sports Venue.

A man has sustained a gunshot wound to the arm following an incident at a sports venue in Rural Co. Tipperary.

The incident happened shortly after 9:00pm during a soccer match, being held under floodlights, near the village of Rear Cross in Co Tipperary.

Gardaí have confirmed that the as yet unnamed victim locally was treated at the scene by emergency services personnel, before being taken by ambulance to University Hospital Limerick (UHL) for the further assessment of his gunshot wound. We understand that his injury is not life-threatening.

Investigating Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses and have preserved the scene for further forensic and technical examination.

It is thought that the shooting may have been accidental and to this end, Gardai are particularly anxious to confirm if any individual may have been hunting in the area at the time and have invited such person or persons to make themselves known.

Any person with further information are requested to contact Nenagh Garda Station, Tel: 067-50450 or the Garda Confidential Line on Tel: 1800 666 111 or indeed any Garda Station.
