Murder probe after Dublin shooting

Gardai have launched a murder inquiry after a second gangland-style gun attack in Dublin in one day

Gardai have launched a murder inquiry after a second gangland-style gun attack in Dublin in one day.

The 20-year-old victim was sitting in a car in Moorfield Avenue, Clondalkin, at about 9pm when a gunman opened fire.

He was shot in his upper body and head and was rushed to Tallaght Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Gardai said no one else was injured in the shooting.

The scene was preserved for a technical examination.

Earlier, a 23-year-old man was shot in the shoulder in the Cabra House pub on Faussagh Avenue, Cabra, north Dublin.

A Garda spokeswoman said the victim refused medical attention for his injuries, which are not life threatening.

Investigators have appealed for witnesses.
