The hitman suspected of murdering Eddie Hutch on the 8th of February may have gunned down Noel ‘Kingsize’ Hutch on Wednesday evening.

The young thug from north Dublin is working for the Kinahan cartel where he is racking up a kill count against Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch’s gang, according to reports in today’s Sun.

The Irish Sun reports that the gun used to blast Kingsize to death is similar to the rare FN – Five Seven handgun which is used by special forces units and packs a 20 round clip.

“This kind of gun is used by special forces groups that you see raiding terrorists in France and Belgium,” a source confirmed.

“Duggan was riddled almost a dozen times, with four of the wounds fatal, while he sat in his car.”

Reports indicate that the suspected gunman and his sidekick stayed in a safe house in Ashbourne, Co Meath for weeks after the killing of taxi driver Eddie Hutch.

Following this the two men received written warnings from gardai, saying that they were being targeted by Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch’s gang.

The plot to kill them was hatched after they were blamed for the murder of Eddie Hutch snr.
