An associate of drug dealer John Gilligan has been shot dead in Dublin.
Stephen “Dougie” Moran, who was connected to organised crime, was shot a number of times by a lone gunman as he walked to his front door at Earlsfort View in Lucan at about 7.30pm yesterday.
He was taken to Tallaght Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Gardai are gathering CCTV footage from the home of the victim, who was in his 40s.
Investigators are appealing to witnesses or anyone with information on the incident to come forward.
A burnt-out car was located yesterday in Glen Vale, Lucan.
Gardai are investigating the possibility that this may have been used in the attack.
