GARDAI SEARCHING FOR GUNMAN AFTER ATTEMPTED MURDER IN BRAY gardabadge
Last week, armed Gardai carried out searches for a convicted rapist who they believe tried to kill a man in the town.
Armed police were searching for the man as they believed he tried to kill a man in his early 30s as he made his way to work last Friday week.
A man wearing a balaclava attempted to fire shots at the victim but it is believed the gun jammed before the intended victim confronted the man and after a struggle he escaped from the scene.
Gardai are currently investigating after carrying out a number of raids in Bray and the North Wicklow area. Anyone with information is asked to contact Bray Garda Station on 01-6665300.
