A MAN WHO was fatally shot in north Dublin in the early hours of this morning has been named as Jamie Tighe Ennis.

The 24-year-old man from the Timbermill Apartments Artane was shot on Moatview Avenue, Priorswood. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination is being carried out by the assistant state pathologist Dr Margaret Bolster.

It is understood that Ennis was known to gardaí – he had a number of convictions, including several firearms offences. The killing is not believed to be connected to the Hutch-Kinahan feud.

A family member of the victim said in a Facebook post that he was heartbroken at the unbelievable news.

Earlier today, gardaí made an appeal for information for those that may have seen a black Audi A3, which was found partially burned out in Finglas shortly after the shooting.

The car’s reg is 00 – OY – 5067.

They also called for the group of people who were with Ennis at the time of the shooting to make contact with them to aid them in their investigation.

If you have information, you can contact Coolock Garda Station on 01 666 4200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
