Three men shot at boxing club in Ireland

The father of Olympic champion Katie Taylor has been seriously injured in a shooting at his boxing club.

A 30-year-old man was killed and gardai say his body remains at the scene pending the arrival of the State Pathologist.

Bray Boxing Club was set up a number of years ago by Pete Taylor and underwent a $350,000 upgrade in 2014 to make it one of the premier boxing clubs in Ireland.

A suspect fled the scene in a silver van.

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

"They are very, very serious but they are not life-threatening at the moment, as we understand it", Mr Ward said.

They are trying to trace the movements of the silver coloured Volkswagen Caddy van with a Northern Irish registration which used in the shooting.

The 22-year-old played a crucial part in Manchester City's record-breaking Premier League title win last season. But apart from team-mate Kevin De Bruyne, no player in Europe's top five leagues had more assists than him.

A garda spokesperson said: 'Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact Bray Garda Station on 01 6665300'.

Bray Boxing Club, which is in the town's harbour area, is where Katie Taylor and fellow Olympian Adam Nolan trained.

A forensic examination of the scene is being carried out by Gardaí (Irish police).

He went on to train Katie to help her win six World Championships titles, six European Championships and five EU Championships.

The scene is now closed off as gardai continue to investigate.

Ireland's health minister Simon Harris, who represents the constituency of Wicklow, tweeted: 'Shocking news in Bray this morning.

"I have no doubt that the Gardai are doing all they can to apprehend those responsible", he said.
