A 35-year-old man has been shot dead in west Dublin.

The shooting happened at Wheatfield Avenue in Clondalkin. It was reported to police at about 21:40 local time.

The gunman is believed to have fired up to five shots at the victim. Irish national broadcaster RTE is reporting the man was on bail for gun offences.

It has described it as a gangland attack, but says it is not thought to be connected to the ongoing Hutch-Kinahan criminal feud.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them.
