"Wearing nothing more than a pair of royal blue Superman Y-fronts, Irish boxing contender Jamie Kavanagh was flexing his muscles for the cameras on stage in preparation for the weigh-in when automatic gunfire echoed around the main hall of Dublin’s Regency Hotel.
Dozens of people attending Friday’s pre-bout ritual for yesterday’s subsequently aborted WBO fight for the European lightweight title fled for their lives. Young boys were caught on a live television feed screaming for their fathers as the shots rang out. As the camera that had been trained on the fighters moved around the room a panic broke out, and the audio captured the sound of a child calling: 'Daddy, Daddy help me! What happened, Daddy?”
“But until Friday’s killing in the Regency Hotel, the most significant murder in this turf war had been that of 34-year-old Gary Hutch. The gangster was gunned down beside the swimming pool at an apartment complex in Angel de Miraflores near Marbella on the Costa del Sol in September last year.”
"COATESVILLE — City police are seeking information about a shooting Monday that left one man in intensive care at a local hospital.
