Man Shot Dead At Dublin House

A man has been found shot dead at a house in Dublin.

The 27-year-old was found with a gunshot wound to his neck at a house in Ashcroft Grove, Blakestown, around 8.30pm on Tuesday.

According to reports, a 17-month-old baby was in the house at the time of the shooting.

The area was sealed off for a forensic examination before the Deputy State Pathologist conducted a preliminary examination and the body was removed from the scene.

Gardaí have launched an investigation and said that the discovery was made in a front downstairs living room of the Blakestown property, which is in north-west Dublin.

Detectives are looking at the possibility that the shooting was gangland-related.

They said the victim was pronounced dead at the scene, and have confirmed the body remains in the house.

They said that anyone with information is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station.
