It was reported that he was gunned down in front of his friends.  The shooting happened at Moateview Avenue, Priorswood, Dublin 17.

He was said to be a close associate of the chief suspect in the double killing of 48-year-old mother-of-six Antoinette Corbally and the innocent locksmith, 30-year-old Clinton Shannon in Ballymun in August.
