A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out on the body of 26-year-old Tristan Sherry who was killed during a gun attack at a restaurant in Dublin on Christmas Eve.
It is believed that a father and son who were in Browne’s Steakhouse on Main Street in Blanchardstown on Sunday evening were the intended targets of a gunman who entered the restaurant at around 8pm.
A man in his 40s was shot and seriously injured and is being treated at Connolly Hospital.
Mr Sherry, the suspected gunman, was tackled during the incident and fatally injured.
His body was removed to the City Morgue where the State Pathologist is due to carry out a post-mortem examination today.
Gardaí in Blanchardstown are investigating the shooting, which they believe is linked to an ongoing feud between organised crime gangs.
Garda patrols in the area have been stepped up with support from armed units and people have been asked not to share footage of the attack on social media.
