A 28-YEAR-OLD man has been remanded in custody after he was charged with the murder of a young father who was shot dead while pushing his infant child in a buggy in Dublin.

Father-of-one Jordan Davis (22), from Darndale, was blasted by a person on a bicycle while pushing his four-month old baby in a buggy.

The fatal shooting occurred at a lane beside Our Lady of Immaculate National School in Darndale just before 4pm on 22 May last.

Last week, gardaí arrested Wayne Cooney from Glenshane Drive, Tallaght, Dublin and he was detained at Coolock Garda Station.

He was brought before Judge Carol Anne Coolican at Dublin District Court today charged with the murder of Davis.

Cooney remained silent throughout the brief hearing. He has not yet indicated how he will plead.

Evidence of arrest, charge and caution was given by Detective Garda Neil Plunkett of Coolock Garda Station.

He told the court Cooney was charged on Saturday at 5.14pm after which he had “no reply”.

The district court cannot conduct a bail hearing in murder cases.

Defence solicitor Michael Hennessy told Judge Coolican that, “a High Court bail application will be made in this case”.

Judge Coolican granted legal aid to Cooney after a statement of means was handed in to court.

She remanded him in custody in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Friday morning.
