In this article we study discontinuous Galerkin finite element discretizations of linear second-order elliptic partial differential equations with Dirac delta right-hand side. In particular, assuming that the underlying computational mesh is quasi-uniform, we derive an a priori bound on the error measured in terms of the L^2-norm. Additionally, we develop residual-based a posteriori error estimators that can be used within an adaptive mesh refinement framework. Numerical examples for the symmetric interior penalty scheme are presented which confirm the theoretical results.
