Man (28) charged with murder of Jordan Davis in Darndale
Father-of-one shot by person on a bicycle while pushing his four-month old baby in a buggy
A 28-year-old man has been remanded in custody after he was charged with the murder of a young father who was shot dead while pushing his infant child in a buggy in Dublin.
The fatal shooting occurred at a lane beside Our Lady of Immaculate National School in Darndale just before 4pm on May 22nd.
He was brought before Judge Carol Anne Coolican at Dublin District Court on Monday and charged with the murder of Mr Davis.
Dressed in a blue T-shirt, runners and black tracksuit bottoms, he sat down and remained silent throughout the brief hearing. He has not yet indicated how he will plead.
Evidence of arrest, charge and caution was given by Det Garda Neil Plunkett of Coolock Station.
He told the court Mr Cooney was charged on Saturday at 5.14pm after which he had “no reply”.
The district court cannot conduct a bail hearing in murder cases.
Defence solicitor Michael Hennessy told Judge Coolican that, “a High Court bail application will be made in this case”.
Judge Coolican granted legal aid to Mr Cooney after a statement of means was handed in to court. She remanded him in custody in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Friday morning.
