A notorious criminal who was shot numerous times in a gangland shooting in June has died from his injuries in hospital.

Gary Carey died in St James’ Hospital at lunchtime today.

Gardai from Kilmainham Station will now launch a murder investigation after the death of the 41-year-old who was discovered in a serious condition in the underground carpark of the Hilton Hotel in Kilmainham by staff before being rushed to hospital on June 24 last.

He was shot in the shoulder, arm, chest and leg by a gunman who had him under surveillance.

There has been no arrests so far in the case.

Carey has been involved in bitter drugs disputes with convicted killer Brian Rattigan who is now based in Spain as well as the west Dublin gang known as ‘The Family.’

It is understood that he was not wearing a bullet proof vest as he usually does after working out in the hotel’s gym and was chased around the carpark by at least one gunman.

Detectives believe that a silver Audi vehicle was used in the shooting and are investigating if the gunman was waiting in it in the underground carpark prior to the shooting.

This car was later found burnt out in Blessington, Co Wicklow.

Carey, originally from nearby Islandbridge, may have been targeted after getting in a dispute with three separate gangs over his drug trafficking distribution network in the capital.

He had been based in Spain for a number of months before returning home in the weeks before he was targeted.
