Man Shot Dead In Dublin's North Inner City
Gardaí are on the hunt for those behind Dublin's latest gangland killing.
27-year-old Jason ‘Buda’ Molyneaux was shot dead at a flat complex in North Strand last night.
His body has been taken to the Mater Hospital, where a post-mortem will take place.
The scene of the shooting remains sealed off for a technical examination.
Gardaí are following a number of lines of inquiry following the murder - including if the victim was killed as part of the ongoing gangland feud in the capital, or if it was to do with a separate feud in Ballymun.

Jason had just attended the wake of his friend Derek ‘Delboy’ Hutch when he was shot dead.
Derek was killed over a week ago in Clondalkin and his funeral took place this morning amid a tight Garda presence in the north inner city.
Speaking at the mass Fr Michael Casey described his murder as a shocking barbaric, violent and cowardly act.
