Detectives arrested 10 people today after the suspected gangland murder of a man in a Dublin suburb.
The victim was shot several times, including once in the head, in the street near his apartment in the affluent area of Portmarnock.
Seven men and three women were detained in a series of early-morning raids in the north of the city.
They were being held separately at Garda stations across the capital.
The murder took place near the Dart station and less than 100 yards from the The Links apartment complex where the dead man lived.
His body remained in the road this morning as the area was sealed off and commuters made their way to work.
The grounds of the apartment complex, a short walk from the exclusive Portmarnock Golf Club, were also closed off for forensic teams to inspect.
A Garda spokesman said the victim was gunned down at around 10.30pm last night.
Raids took place in north Dublin less than 10 hours after the murder and it is understood a number of those being questioned were detained in one house.
The suspects are aged from 24 to 56, a Garda spokesman said.
No firearms were recovered in the raids.
The dead man is the 19th person to have been shot dead this year and the gun attack follows an attempted murder in Killester, north Dublin, on Saturday morning.
Detectives from Malahide were in charge of the investigation and the State Pathologist has been called in.
Irish Rail said Dart and commuter services from the station should run as normal despite road closures on Station Road and the Strand Road junction.
