A man in his 20s has been shot dead in West Dublin.

The victim, who it's believed is related to the Hutch's, was killed at a halting site in Ronanstown.

Details of this shooting are still emerging but it's understood a man in his 20s was sitting in his car when he was shot shortly after three o'clock this afternoon at the Bridgeview Halting Site in Ronanstown.

Emergency services were called to the scene and worked on the victim but he died a short time later.

The victim is believed to be related to the Hutch Family and Gardai are now investigating if the death is related to the ongoing gangland feud in Dublin.

A car was found on fire a short distance away at Crag Avenue Business Park and that scene - along with the scene of the shooting - have been sealed off.

Gardai are appealing for anyone with information to contact them at Ronanstown Garda Station.
