    Update at 8pm: Three people, including a Garda , have been shot dead in a domestic incident in Louth.
    It's understood Gardaí were called to a house in Omeath just after 6pm this evening.
    The scene has been sealed off and an investigation launched.
    The office of the state pathologist has been notified.
    Local Journalist Ken Murray spoke to us just a few minutes ago: “The details are still unclear at this stage, but what I’m hearing is that an incident occurred in a house, in the village of Omeath.
    “It seems that a shooting took place.
    “I understand that the Gardaí were called and when they arrived at the door to investigate the incident, one of the Gardaí was shot.
    “Another shooting occurred shortly afterwards.
    “The details are scarce at the moment, but more will be known in the coming hours.”

    Don't buy wireless earpods, there not there yet.

    Very sad indeed for everyone involved, but especially the garda as he was only doing his job.

    You have to wonder what an unarmed Garda was doing walking into a house with an known dissident republican inside, especially after he had made threats to kill.

    http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime...ting-1.2387868
    The shooting happened after a woman had gone to gardaí in Omeath on the Cooley Peninsula and expressed her fear that her partner was going to kill her and himself.
    The gardaí escorted her to the property on the Mullach Álainn estate in the north Louth village to collect her personal items. When the woman entered the home, the man shot her.
    A garda followed the woman into the bedroom, where he was fatally shot with a handgun.
    The deceased garda, Tony Golden, a married father of three, had gone to the house just before 6.30pm.
    The woman was last night seriously injured in hospital after her partner, dissident republican Adrian Crevan Mackin, took his own life.
    Crevan Mackin, a 24-year-old originally from Co Down, was on bail having been charged earlier this year with membership of an illegal organisation
