Gardaí believe attackers were waiting for shooting victim

An appeal has been issued to identify people who were seen in the Wheatfield Avenue area in Clondalkin, Dublin before a 35-year-old man was shot dead.

The victim has been named as Darragh Nugent.

He was shot dead at around 9.40pm. Nugent was known to gardaí and was on bail for gun offences.

Speaking to media, Supt Dermot Mann said: "We believe that a number of people were in the area, probably sometime from around 9pm up until the time of the shooting.

"I'm making an appeal for people in the area to assist us to identify those people or to help us with any information in our investigation."

Gardaí say that a car sped off from the area on to Collinstown Road following the shooting, but are unsure where the car went from there.

"At this stage, we believe that that car was a large saloon, it may be a BMW or similar, and probably a n old car. The direction of that car is unknown to us at this stage, but it is very important in our investigation," Supt Mann said.

Gardaí suspect the killing is drugs or gun-related but not connected to the ongoing Hutch-Kinahan feud.

The incident happened near where the man lived with his partner and two children.

It is believed the gunman fired up to five shots at Nugent, who was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Nugent spent time in prison and was on bail for firearms offences after he was chased by gardaí last February and caught with a handgun and ammunition.

The gunman was driven away from the scene in a car from the junction of Wheatfield Avenue and Crescent.

The scene has been preserved for a forensic examination and gardaí are trying to identify witnesses.
