Gardai are investigating the latest shooting in the city linked to the ongoing gangland feud.
The body of a man, who has been named locally as Michael Keogh, was found in an underground car park at Sheridan Court on Dorset Street at around 9:50am on Wednesday morning. He had been shot dead in a VW Golf as he was about to leave for work.
The attack has been linked to the Hutch/Kinahan feud and the victim had a connection to the Kinahan side.
Gardaí at Mountjoy are appealing for witnesses.
Earlier Wednesday morning a car bearing false number plates was found on fire in a laneway off Clonliffe Avenue in Drumcondra at around 7.30am.
Gardaí believe this car is connected to the fatal shooting. The car is described as a grey Opel Astra registration number: 12 D 16387 and was stolen in the Dublin area in April this year.
It's understood that a weapon was found in the back seat. Gardaí want to speak to anyone with information, particularly taxi drivers or other motorists who may have dash-cams and who were in vicinity of Dorset Street, Clonliffe Ave and surrounding areas of Dublin between 7am and 10am, to view any footage they have and contact Gardaí at Mountjoy Street Garda Station on 01 666 8600, The Garda Confidential Line 1800 666111 or any Garda Station.
Locals say the violence is no longer surprising and the feud is taking over their area. There are fears that Keogh's killing will fuel the Kinahan murder campaign against the Hutch gang.
