A man charged with confiscating a revolver and ammunition after a shooting in Dublin has been remanded in custody.
A man in his 20s was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being shot around 5pm on April 8 in Cherrywood Grove, Clondalkin.
He was taken to Tallaght Hospital.
On Monday afternoon, Gardaí arrested Sam Archibald, 35, of Commons Road, Clondalkin.
He was detained at a local police station under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.
Mr Archibald was charged with two offenses under the Arms Act just after 10pm on Friday.
Gardaí then held him pending his appearance before Judge John King at Dublin District Court on Saturday. Detective Garda Sergeant Dara Kenny told the court the defendant made “no answer” to the charges.
He is accused of possessing a .38 caliber revolver on April 8 in order to endanger life in Cherrywood Grove. He is also accused of possessing 31 rounds of ammunition of various calibers and nine shotgun shells at another address in Clondalkin between April 8 and last Monday.
Defense attorney Stephan O’Mahony told Judge King he received a copy of the Garda’s bail appeal. However, he added that his client is deferring his bail request.
Judge King remanded him to appear before Cloverhill District Court via video link on Thursday pending instructions from the chief prosecutor.
He also complied with a defense request to direct medical care for the detained defendant.
Mr Archibald, who has not addressed the court, has not yet indicated how he will plead.
His attorney applied for legal aid and told the court his client had previously worked, but he added that Detective Sergeant Kenny accepted that Mr Archibald was “not a man of wealth”.
The judge granted them after the investigating officer determined that the defendant was entitled to legal aid. Judge King also said the man would be given a medical examination when taken into custody.
