Multiple reports that a Garda has been shot and seriously injured during an incident in Dundalk this evening. The Sunday World twitter account has said that the Garda has died. The Garda was apparently responding to a robbery of a cash in transit van at a credit union in the town.

Edit: RTE has confirmed the news:

This evening? That's an odd time for a cash in transit van to be servicing a credit union.

Nothing on RTE or "breaking" news.ie. Terrible news. Hope the bastards are caught and spend the rest of their miserable lives in prison.
