The 34-year-old father of one - who had no criminal convictions - was shot dead in broad daylight at a warehouse in Finglas yesterday afternoon.
A masked man is thought to have fired several shots into Colm Ownes' torso and head at the Corn Store animal feed warehouse at the Grove Indistrial Estate at 12.10 yesterday afternoon.
The 34-year-old father of one was working at the time.
State pathologist Dr Marie Cassidy carried out a preliminary post mortem yesterday and a full examination will be conducted today.
Detectives believe the gunman fled the scene in a waiting silver Audi A4 car driven by an accomplice which later crashed on Tolka Valley Road and was then abandoned.
The murder brings to 16 the number who have died this year in gun killings.
