by 2 years ago

According to multiple reports, three men dressed as police officers stormed into a boxing weigh-in at the Regency Hotel in Dublin this morning, opened fired with AK-47s, injuring two and killing one of the bystanders.

The Independent had more details:

Dozens of young children, women and men dived for cover after two men burst into a hotel lobby firing shots at will.

Outside the hotel, a third gunman was seen roaming the area firing another shot while he warned an innocent man – who happened to be walking nearby carrying shopping – to “get out of the fucking way”.

An investigation is ongoing in and around the hotel as to what the motive was, as the weigh-in was for an MGM BoxNation event scheduled for tomorrow night, with Jamie Kavanagh vs. Joao Bento and Gary Corcoran vs. Danny Butler on the fight card. The BBC is reporting that event is now cancelled.
