A jury at the Central Criminal Court has been shown CCTV footage of the moment a 22-year-old man was shot dead while wheeling his four-month-old baby son, three years ago.
The footage was shown in the trial of 31-year-old Wayne Cooney from Glenshane Drive in Tallaght who has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Jordan Davis at a laneway beside Our Lady of Immaculate National School in Darndale in Dublin on 22 May, 2019.
He also pleaded not guilty to possessing a 9mm semi-automatic pistol and to possessing ammunition.
Today, the jury was told that footage had been examined from 48 cameras in multiple positions in the Darndale area over a three-day period around the time of Mr Davis' killing. Fifty segments of footage were compiled from 22 cameras in 14 locations.
The court was shown footage beginning shortly after 3pm on 22 May which showed a person on a bike cycling around the area. Footage from multiple locations showing a person on a bike was played the jury. Other footage from the area showed the movements of Jordan Davis who was wheeling a buggy.
Shortly before 4pm Mr Davis was seen on the footage being joined by another man who walks with him into a laneway. A person on a bike also cycles into the laneway and alongside Mr Davis.
Gardaí said a local child could also be seen cycling through the laneway at the same time. The footage shows Mr Davis fall to the ground immediately after the person on the bike cycles alongside him.
The person on the bike is seen continuing on through the laneway while the man who had been walking with Mr Davis returns to the lane and retrieves the buggy.
The jury was also shown footage of the movements of a man and a woman walking in the area in the hours after the incident in the laneway.
The prosecution alleges that Wayne Cooney was connected to a man who had fallen out with Jordan Davis.
The jury was told that text messages had been sent to Mr Davis about a €70,000 debt and that Mr Davis had received threatening text messages which said "it won't be long" and "bang bang".
The trial is expected to last up to four weeks.
