Gardaí investigating the murder of a teenager in Meath can find no motive for his killing and are appealing to the public for assistance.
19-year-old Conor O’Brien was discovered dead in a driveway in Enfield after suffering a single gunshot wound.
Superintendent Liam Geraghty said the teenager “was not known to the gardaí in any format whatsoever that we are aware of at this time”.
“Our understanding is that he was due to start a new career very, very shortly, in the next week or so. We have no motive for this killing at this time,” he continued.
The Superintendent was asked whether the killing could have been a case of mistaken identity, to which he replied: “We have a very open mind at this stage. We will follow any line of inquiry.”
O’Brien had been living in a self-contained apartment for the previous four months, having moved to Enfield from Gorey in Wexford.
