Gardaí investigating the murder of Christopher Warren have cordoned off an area near the Broadstone Bus Station in Dublin in connection with their investigation.
The 35 year old - who was known to Gardaí - was dropped off at St. James' Hospital in Dublin at around 7pm yesterday evening, by someone driving a blue Mercedes.
He had severe gunshot wounds and died in hospital a short time later.
The Mercedes was later found by Gardaí abandoned on Cork Street. It is still not known exactly where the shooting took place.
A man in his late 20s has been arrested in connection with Mr Warren's killing.
