3 held after botched raid.
Gardai arrived at Molloy's off-licence at Swiss Cottage in Santry as three armed raiders were making their getaway.
The men had held up staff shortly before 12.30am and taken a substantial sum of money.
One of the raiders fired a shot and hijacked the Garda car but was cornered at the scene.
Another raider was caught after he made his way off on foot.
A third raider managed to hijack a taxi after threatening the driver but Gardai managed to pull the keys from the ignition.
A quantity of money, a swan-off shotgun and a stolen car were later recovered from the scene.
A Garda spokesman said the incident was frightening for the officers involved.
