FOUR MEN HAVE been arrested in connection with the murder of John Wilson in Ballyfermot in Dublin last week.

The arrest of the four men this morning brings to five the total number of people who have been arrested in connection with Wilson’s death.

A car was also seized as part of this morning’s operation, Gardaí say.

The 35-year-old was shot a number of times at a house on Cloverhill Road just before 3pm last Friday in what was described as a gangland killing.

The four arrested men range in ages from late teens to their early 30s and are being detained under section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act at Garda Stations in the Dublin city region.

They can be held for up to seven days.
