Moldovan asylum seeker shoots fellow national in Dublin

A MOLDOVAN national being questioned by gardai about a shooting attack was last night under armed guard in hospital.

The suspect was detained by two off-duty gardai after an incident in which another Moldovan was shot several times in the chest and upper body in the car park of the Garda Sports and Social Club in Westmanstown, Dublin, around lunchtime on Sunday.

The two men arrived here separately as asylum seekers in 2001 and were granted permission to stay in the country under the Irish-born child (IBC) scheme, which permitted the parents of children born in this country to remain here.
