PastedImage-99625 Sean Little and Jordan Davis

Davis and his friend Sean Little, both 22-years-old, were shot dead in the space of 24 hours in Dublin this week. 

Little was found dead beside a car that had been set alight at Rowans Little, Walshestown, Balbriggan on Tuesday night. At 4pm the next day, Davis was gunned down. 

Shortly before he was killed, Davis posted a tribute to his friend, Seán Little, who was found dead with gunshot wounds near the M1 motorway in Dublin the night before.

Sharing a picture of the pair, Davis wrote: “Rest in paradise, you were a gent.” 

Speaking about the killings in Ballymun garda station, Assistant Commissioner Pat Leahy appealed to young people – young men in particular – not to get involved at any level in the drugs trade.

He said a potential “unintended consequence” of the force’s success in cracking down on the feuding Hutch and Kinahan gangs was the creation of a void that other gangs – and younger members of them – were fighting to fill.
