19 year-old Love/Hate actor, Leroy Harris, was shot in Dublin city centre last night.
The teenager was shot in the leg and brought to hospital overnight where his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
It is thought that the incident was a case of mistaken identity.
Leroy is best known for his role in RTÉ’s hit drama, Love/Hate as the character who shot a cat.
There was much concern over the welfare of the cat who was later brought on to The Late Late Show.
