Gardai say it's lucky that innocent civilians weren't injured in a gang-related shooting near Dublin Airport yesterday.
A man is fighting for his life after becoming the latest target of the Hutch/Kinahan feud. The victim, in his late 30s, was shot at least twice at a petrol station on the Clonshaugh Road Wednesday afternoon.
The attack happened at around 1:35pm at a Topaz garage. A black car was seen leaving the scene, and Superintendent Finbarr Murphy is trying to trace its movements.
"It's an 08-D registration number and we believe that car has been found burnt out in Ardee in County Louth."
Superintendent Murphy said his appeal is "for anybody for anybody who may have seen dangerous driving of a black Lexus car" in the area of the shooting to contact Gardai.
The victim is an associate of the Hutches and knew his life was in danger. He was wearing a bullet proof vest.
Gardai have described the shooting as outrageous. 60 people were inside the filling station at the time and gardai say anyone of them could have been shot as well.
Gardai at Ballymun are investigating and are appealing for witnesses.
They want anyone with information to contact Ballymun Garda Station on 016664400, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
