Four quizzed in murder inquiry

FOUR men have been arrested and a car impounded by gardai hunting the killer of gangster John Wilson.

All four, aged from their late teens to early 30s, were detained in Wednesday-morning raids in Dublin under special laws targeting organised crime.

Five men in total are now in custody for questioning over the murder.

Wilson, 35, a drug dealer with a firearms conviction, was gunned down at his home in Ballyfermot, Dublin, last Friday, just minutes after doing the school run.

The five suspects are being held under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 at Garda stations in the Dublin area.

They can can be held for up to seven days.
