A heroin dealer cautioned a father of one who was shot dead while pushing a pram with his four-month-old infant.

Wayne Cooney’s trial began on Wednesday before Bernard Condon SC, who denies murdering Jordan Davis in Dublin over three years ago.

The trial involves “especially callous acts of violence and brutality against a fellow resident of this city,” Mr Condon told the jury of eight men and four women.

Mr Davis was seen wheeling a pram before he was shot “repeatedly by the individual who the prosecution claims was Wayne Cooney,” he said, adding that the killing was filmed on CCTV in broad daylight and in front of people going about their regular business.

There will be evidence that Mr Davis was a drug dealer, but this, according to Mr Condon, does not diminish his claim to life.

Mr Cooney (31), of Glenshane Drive in Tallaght, pleaded not guilty to the murder of Jordan Davis (22) on May 22nd, 2019 in a laneway outside Our Lady of Immaculate National School in Darndale, Dublin.

He also pled not guilty to possessing a 9mm semi-automatic weapon and ammunition under circumstances that would lead a reasonable person to believe he did not hold them for authorized purposes.

Mr Condon claimed that the accused knew the drug dealer, who threatened Mr Davis because Mr Cooney was dating CD’s sister, according to Mr Condon. Counsel said that CD and Mr Davis were involved in the “drugs business,” but that they had a falling out.
