Man dies following Dublin shooting
A man in his 50s has died following a gun attack near Dublin city centre.
The victim was walking along Bridgefoot Street in the south west inner city at about 16.10 local time on Friday, when a gunman approached him.
He was shot a number of times and was taken to St James Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
The gunman is believed to have left the scene in a silver or grey coloured Mercedes Benz CLA.
The car, which had been stolen from Navan Road on Thursday, was driven by a second man.
It was discovered, burnt out, at Spitalfields, close to Dublin's Carman's Hall.
A firearm was recovered close to the scene by Gardaí (Irish police) and will be forensically examined.
The scene of the shooting has been cordoned off.
