Gardaí have launched a murder investigation following the shooting dead of Eric Fowler in Blanchardstown last night.

The 34-year-old was gunned down outside a house at Blakestown Cottages shortly before 7pm.

He had been shot a number of times and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A car believed to have been used in the incident, was found burnt out in Clonee a short time later.

Investigating officers believe two people were involved in the killing, and are looking into possible links to an ongoing gangland feud.
