Two people have told Freddie Thompson’s murder trial they witnessed a car being burnt out in Dublin three days after David Douglas was shot dead.

The prosecution believe it was one of four cars used in the planning and execution of the father-of-one’s murder.

David Douglas died after being shot six times by a lone gunman in a shoe shop on Bridgefoot Street in Dublin city on July 1st 2016.

Freddie Thompson, of Loreto Road in Maryland isn’t accused of pulling the trigger but the prosecution claims he was involved in his murder.

As part of their investigation, Gardaí identified four cars, including two getaway cars.

A Mercedes that took the gunman from the scene was burnt out at a nearby block of apartments.

Iveta Sutkote told the court she saw a Mitsubishi crashing into a silver car in a car park in Sandymount in south Dublin three days later.

She said there was no one in the silver car and she saw one of three men get out of the other car with a petrol can which he used to set it on fire.

The prosecution claims this silver car was stolen the month before and was used as the ultimate getaway car after the Mercedes was burnt out.
