A man in his 20s has been arrested in connection with the Regency Hotel shooting earlier this year. 

David Byrne (32) was gunned down during an armed raid at a boxing event in the Dublin hotel on February 5th. He is thought to have been killed as part of the ongoing Kinahan-Hutch feud.

The suspect, a man in his 20s, was arrested this evening on the northside of Dublin.

He is currently being held under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act at Ballymun Garda Station.
