A Dublin man has been killed in a shooting in Spain.

He has been named as 30-year-old Richard Keogh.

Mr Keogh was shot outside a casino in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol at around 11pm last night.

He was known to gardaí for his suspected involvement in drug trafficking and it is understood he was a target of the Criminal Assets Bureau, the Garda National Drugs and the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency.

Originally from Carnlough Road in Cabra, he moved to Spain two years ago after a previous attempt on his life in Duleek, Co Louth.

According to reports, the father-of-four died after a car pulled up and a gunman fired at least 10 shots at him.
