The Regency Hotel , Swords Road, Dublin 9
One man has been shot dead while two others were seriously injured in a shooting in Dublin.
The shooting took place at 2.30pm at the Regency Hotel on the Swords Road during a weigh-in for tomorrow’s WBO European Lightweight title fight between Jamie Kavanagh v Antonio Jao Bento.
It is believed the gunmen were dressed in Garda uniforms and used semi-automatic weapons.
Detectives are trying to establish a motive for the murder but one line of inquiry is that it could be connected to the murder of Gary Hutch, who was shot dead in Spain last September.
