The investigation into a shooting in Bray in which one man was killed is focusing on the getaway car.

A gunman opened fire at Bray Boxing Club yesterday morning, killing 50 year old Robert Messett.

It's thought world champion boxer Katie Taylor's father, Pete, was the intended target. He along with another man were injured in the incident.

The shooter fled the scene in a silver Volkswagen caddy, before it was found abandoned on Pigeon House Road in the Ringsend area.

Gardai are investigating whether the shooting is linked to an ongoing local feud.
