GARDAI believe that Ireland's latest gangland victim was shot on the orders of a gang behind the shooting of businessman Sean Enright last month.

Senior sources have revealed that armed robber Karl Wynne (47) was lured to a meeting and then shot repeatedly as he sat on a wall in Tallaght on Thursday night.

Wynne remains on a life support machine in hospital.

He had previously been arrested in connection with the botched hit on bodybuilder Sean Enright at a Cabra gym but was released without charge.

A senior source said: "The main line in this investigation is that those who shot Wynne are the same crew that ordered Enright's shooting, something that Wynne was arrested for.

"This is a crew based in the Cabra and Finglas area who are also linked to the murder of Paul Cullen earlier this year."

 

SUSPECT

Gardai have discovered that a getaway car used in the Enright shooting was sourced in the North.

The main suspect for ordering the Enright shooting is a Cabra-based man who has IRA connections and is feuding with the bodybuilder over a love triangle and also a cash dispute.

The attack on Wynne happened at St Dominic's Shopping Centre on Mountain Park Road in Tallaght.

Wynne was shot in the upper body and head by a pillion passenger on a black motorcycle.

Wynne was hit three times: once in the head and twice in the body.

He was also linked to Tallaght murder victim Alan Desmond, whose decomposed body was found in a bin bag in a field last month.
