A 23-YEAR-OLD woman arrested by gardaí investigating the fatal shooting of a father-of-two in Dublin in 2017, has been released without charge. 

Fitness instructor John Gibson was shot a number of times in a car park at Fortunestown Lane near Citywest Village Shopping Centre on 18 September 2017. 

Investigating gardaí believed that the deceased was killed as part of a local feud.

A 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with the shooting on Monday morning. He was released without charge last night and a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The woman arrested last night was being held at Tallaght Garda Station under the provisions of Section 30 – Offences Against the State Act 1939.

A garda spokesperson said a file will now be prepared for the DPP.
