The death toll in the Kinahan/Hutch feud now stands at seven following the cold-blooded execution of Gareth Hutch yesterday morning.
The underworld's one-time man of respect, Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch, has now lost two nephews, a brother and his best friend as the Kinahan cartel seeks to make good on the threat which they made to him in January - to wipe out his family.
The carnage has also claimed the lives of Hutch ally and dissident Republican Michael Barr, and Martin O'Rourke, an entirely innocent man shot in a case of mistaken identity for another Hutch gang target.
