The 22 year old was shot outside a church in Darndale.

A man has gone on trial accused of murdering a young father as he was pushing his baby in a buggy in Dublin on the 22nd of May 2019.

Wayne Cooney from Glenshane Drive in Tallaght, is also accused of having a semi-automatic pistol and 9mm bullets in his possession on the day of the shooting.

Jordan Davis died after being shot three times outside a church in Darndale in the northside of Dublin.

He was 22 years old and pushing his baby son in a pram.

In his opening address today, the prosecuting barrister, Bernard Condon SC, described this murder as a “particularly callous and brutal act of violence.”

He told the jury that Mr Davis was a drug dealer who owed another man money and he claimed this man made a threat to kill him a few days beforehand.

He said it will be alleged that Wayne Cooney was the one who shot him in broad daylight.

Over the course of the trial, he told the jurors they’d be shown CCTV footage and taken through forensic evidence which, he claimed, linked Mr Cooney to the scene of the shooting.

The trial is expected to take up to four weeks
