Man Charged In Connection With Dublin Murder To Appear In Court On Monday


A man who has been arrested in connection with the investigation of the murder of David Douglas, back in July of this year, is expected to appear in court on Monday.

Gardaí arrested the 35-year-old man on Tuesday, after being stopped while travelling to Dublin from the North, and has been in garda custody since.

He was being questioned at Kilmainham Garda Station about the murder of Mr. Douglas, an Irish zookeeper turned criminal, who was shot dead on Bridgefoot Street, Dublin 8 on July 1 of this year.

Mr Douglas was approached by a man who fired a number of gunshots that killed him while he was standing outside a shop on Bridgefoot Street, in broad daylight.

The father-of-one was standing in the doorway of a shop owned by his wife Yumei when he was approached by a lone gunman and blasted in both the head and chest.

The victim was rushed to St James’s Hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after.
