Gardai have arrested two people in connection with the gangland killing of Gareth Hutch.

Mr Hutch was gunned down by a Kinahan cartel hit-squad on Tuesday morning.

The 35-year-old was shot in the body and head by the assassins who escaped on foot when their getaway car failed to start.

The two people were arrested yesterday evening in connection with the killing and are being detained under the provisions of section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 as amended at Bridewell and Store Street Garda stations.

Three people are now in custody in connection with the killing.
