GARDAÍ INVESTIGATING yesterday’s gangland shooting are appealing to witnesses and anyone with information to come forward.

27-year-old Derek Hutch was shot at the Bridgeview halting site near Cloverhill Road, Dublin.

The alarm was raised shortly after 3pm and a number of garda units and emergency services attended the scene.

He was shot while sitting in a car near the site, close to Cloverhill Prison.

The location of the attack was sealed off yesterday and the State Pathologist and members of the Garda Technical Bureau were requested to attend the scene.

Gardaí from Lucan Garda Station are today asking anyone who was in the Cloverhill Road area between 1.30pm and 3.10pm yesterday with dash cam footage to come forward.
