30-year-old dies in shooting incident in Bray

World Champion Katie Taylor's dad Pete Taylor is among three men who were shot at Bray Boxing Club this morning.

"Unfortunately a 30-year-old man died at the scene and two others were injured".

Gardaí have appealed for information from the public to help track the gunman which killed one man and injured two others in a shooting in Bray boxing club on Tuesday.

"We know one person entered the gym and came out and made their getaway in a silver VW Caddy with a Northern Ireland registered number".

Peter Taylor, 57, and another man aged 35 were taken to hospital with injuries.

The gym is owned by Bray municipal council and operated by Mr Taylor.

Mr Taylor is thought to be in a serious but not life threatening condition.

They are appealing to anyone who witnessed the movements of the van along the route travelled between 7-8am yesterday morning to contact them.

Taylor, a boxing coach, is the father and former trainer of Olympic and world champion boxer Katie Taylor.
