GARDAÍ INVESTIGATING THE fatal shooting of Gintaras Zelvys on 1 May at a ‘cash-for clothes’ business in Dublin are questioning three men today.

The suspects, two of whom are in their 20s and one in his mid-30s, were arrested this morning and are being detained at various stations across Dublin.

Zelvys, a 43-year-old Lithuanian with prior convictions, was shot several times inside a commercial premises at Greenogue Industrial Estate in Rathcoole.

The father-of-one was well-known to gardaí and to police in his native country.

Gardaí are still appealing for information about a silver-coloured Audi A3 five-door hatchback that they believe is associated to the crime.

Detectives wish to speak with anyone who may have seen the vehicle – which has a partial registration number 05-TN – either at Pace Avenue, Little Pace, Dublin 15 between 19 March and 30 April or at Newcastle Boulevard or Aylmer Road in Newcastle on the night of 30 April or the morning of the 1 May.
