CCTV FOOTAGE SHOWING the moment Gareth Hutch was shot dead yesterday morning is being widely shared online.

The 35-year-old taxi driver and father-of-one was gunned downed in the car park of the Avondale House flat complex in Dublin’s north inner city by two men.

He was a nephew of Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch, and the seventh victim of an ongoing feud between the Hutch and Kinahan gangs.

A number of shots were fired during the incident and the men attempted to leave the scene in a black 5 series BMW, with the registration 02 D 39051, but soon after got out and made their escape on foot.

A garda spokesperson said it is not clear where the CCTV footage originated from and no investigation is currently under way as to how it was made public.

The spokesperson said gardaí are “examining all CCTV footage from the area” and appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

“If there is an offence disclosed it will be investigated,” they added.

A man was arrested in connection with the murder after handing himself into gardaí yesterday evening. He is being detained at Mountjoy garda station.
