A MAN SHOT at least three times in Dublin yesterday remains in a critical condition.

The man, named as 38-year-old Christopher Maguire, was shot as he sat in a car outside his home in the Dun Emer estate in Lusk, north county Dublin.

It is believed Maguire placed the call to emergency services himself.

It is not yet known if the shooting is linked to the ongoing Hutch-Kinahan feud, but Maguire is known to gardaí.

He was taken to Beaumont Hospital, where he remains.
