Gardaí believe attackers were waiting for shooting victim

Man dies in Dublin Shooting

Darragh Nugent, 36, who was killed on Wheatfield Avenue in Neilstown at about 9.40pm on Monday night, was shot five times before his attackers fled in a large saloon auto down Collinstown Road. Irish national broadcaster RTE is reporting the man was on bail for gun offences. "That makes it all the more horrific", said Mr Mann.

"We believe there were a number of people in the area, probably from sometime around 9pm up until the time of the shooting".

The gunman and an accomplice fled in a vehicle to Collinstown Road following the shooting, but gardai are unsure where the auto went from there.

"At this stage, we believe that that auto was a large saloon, it may be a BMW or similar, and probably an old vehicle".

"The direction of that auto is unknown to us at this stage, but it is very important in our investigation", said Mr Mann.

Gardaí do not, at this stage, believe it is related to the ongoing Kinahan and Hutch feud that has already claimed the lives of 12 people.

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

The gunman is believed to have fired up to five shots at the victim.

The shooting occurred in Wheatfield Avenue, Clondalkin last night.

"Darragh Nugent (36) was shot several times in the street and Gardaí are investigating whether the attackers were waiting for him to arrive home".
