Teenager dies and two left seriously injured after stabbing following 'dispute'

One teenager has died and another is hospitalized with serious injuries after being stabbed last night.

The fatal incident occurred around 9:20 p.m. in an area in north Dublin, Ireland.

Police went to the “public order incident” site on the east wall and two young men were taken to Mater Hospital with serious injuries.

A short time later, a third man with injuries presented himself to the Mater Hospital.

A source on site told Dublin Live previously that the first two victims were in “very poor condition” and the area had been cordoned off while Gardai continued their investigation.

Police later confirmed that one of the teenage men later died in the hospital.

A local councilor, Anthony Flynn, said on social media: “Shocking scenes in the [North East Inner City] This evening. Right in front of my door.

“Two young people stabbed absolutely incredible. Thoughts and prayers are with both of them.”

No further information was available on the age of the deceased or injured or the details of his injuries.

A number of investigators are believed to be investigating that the men were involved in an argument with another young man.

The police’s full statement reads: “Gardaí is currently investigating all the circumstances of a fatal attack and related incidents that occurred tonight on East Road, East Wall, Dublin 3, January 26, 2020.
