GARDAÍ HAVE ISSUED an appeal for witnesses to a series of events surrounding the fatal shooting of a 35-year-old man in central Dublin yesterday evening.

Christopher Warren, 35, was left at the emergency ward of St James’s Hospital at about 7pm last night having sustained suspected gunshot wounds. He died in the hospital a short time later.

Gardaí said he had been dropped to the hospital in a blue Mercedes C180 which was found abandoned on Cork Street a short time later.

Officers have asked anyone who saw the car drop Warren at St James’s, or who may have seen any suspicious activity around Cork Street shortly after 7pm, to contact them.

They have also asked anyone who may have seen or heard any usual behaviour in the Philsborough area, around Great Western Way, the Royal Canal Bank, Auburn Street or any roads adjoining those streets, to get in touch.

Witnesses can contact Gardaí at Mountjoy at (01) 666 8000, on the Garda Confidential line at 1800 666 111, or at any Garda station.

A man in his late 20s, who was arrested earlier today in connection with the incident, remains in custody at Kevin Street.
