GARDAÍ ARE CONTINUING to question a man in his 20s in connection with the fatal shooting of Christopher Warren in Dublin city centre.

The man being detained in custody at Kevin Street Garda station in Dublin is being held under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act, which means he can be questioned for up to 7 days.

Warren was left at the Accident and Emergency Department at  St James’s Hospital with gunshot wounds on Friday night. He died in the hospital a short time later.

A blue Mercedes which is believed to have dropped him at the hospital was found abandoned on nearby Cork Street shortly afterwards.

It has not yet been confirmed where the shooting took place but Gardaí are continuing to examine a scene at Constitution Hill in Dublin 7.

Gardaí have appealed for anyone who saw the car drop Warren at St James’s or who may have seen any suspicious activity around Cork Street shortly after 7pm on Friday evening to contact them.

They have also asked for anyone who witnessed any unusual incidents around Constitutional Hill and any adjoining roads to come forward.
