Katie Taylor: Man dies after shooting at gym of boxer's father

Taylor is father and former coach of Olympic champion boxer Katie Taylor and in recent years he has set up a boxing club in Bray.

Gardai said the men had sustained serious injuries in the attack in Bray, Co Wicklow.

Gardaí have appealed for information from the public to help track the gunman which killed one man and injured two others in a shooting in Bray boxing club on Tuesday.

The other two men, who have been hospitalised, are aged 35 and 57. The injuries are not life-threatening.

The club was started by unified lightweight champion Katie Taylor's father, Pete Taylor.

Irish police said that the suspect left the scene of the shooting in a silver-coloured Volkswagen van with Northern Ireland registration plates.

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

They are appealing to anyone who witnessed the movements of the van along the route travelled between 7-8am yesterday morning to contact them.

A technical examination of the area is being carried out by specialist officers.

Local Sinn Fein TD John Brady tweeted: 'Absolutely shocking news coming from Bray Boxing club this morning.

There was a heavy gardai presence at the scene on Tuesday as officers investigated the shooting.

Ireland's Health Minister Simon Harris called the news "shocking" but said he had "no doubt that the Gardai are doing all they can to apprehend those responsible".
