Gardai arrest second suspect in gun murder

Gardai have arrested another suspect for questioning about a gun murder in west Dublin almost a year and a half ago.

Officers detained the man in his mid-40s yesterday and brought him to Ronanstown garda station in connection with their inquiries into the shooting of Dean Johnston, near his home at Moorefield Avenue in Neilstown in May 2011.

The man is being held under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act and can be detained without charge for up to three days.

On Tuesday detectives arrested a 23-year-old man under section 50 of the 2007 Criminal Justice Act.

He is still in custody.

Gardai believe Mr Johnston's murder is linked to a local feud.
