THIS is the man fatally injured in a gun attack in Dublin last night.

The man named locally as Alan O’Neill (35) was fatally injured in a gun attack at Kiltalown Road in Tallaght around 10.30pm last night.

The keen body-builder was shot three times in the callous attack. He was treated at the scene before being rushed to Tallaght Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Two men aged 28 and 18 have been arrested in connection with the shooting which is believed to be linked to the drug trade.

At a press conference today, Gardai said they were searching for a third suspect in connection with the murder. 

The men were arrested near the scene of the shooting.

A car was found burning close to the scene and is being preserved for technical examination. 

Gardai have appealed for anyone with information to contact them at Tallaght Garda Station.
