There was some late developing news last night as Gardaí in Dublin have confirmed they have identified the young man who was tragically shot in Dublin’s inner city yesterday afternoon.

Gardai say they have identified the man and have informed his family who have since asked for privacy. It is understood the victim of the horrific shooting which occurred at the junction of Sheriff and Oriel Street was not the intended target.

They also say the man in his 20’s was shot up to six times and sadly was pronounced dead at the Mater Hospital a short time later. Meanwhile Superintendent Kevin Gralton at Store Street Garda station has made an appeal for witnesses who may have information to come forward and contact the Gardai.

Supr Gralton said: “I would ask that anybody that witnessed this shooting today to call us,’ said Superintendent Kevin Gralton.

“I would also ask that anybody that saw a male on a black pedal cycle on Sheriff Street Lower at approximately 12.25pm today, and who abandoned the pedal cycle on Sheriff Street lower at the junction of Seville Place and Guild Street and then left on foot to make contact with us here at Store St on 01 6668000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.”
