One man has died and two others are injured after a shooting incident at a hotel in Dublin on Friday afternoon. 
Unidentified gunmen opened fire while a boxing tournament weigh-in was going on at the Regency Hotel, around two miles north of the city centre.
Men brandishing AK47s and wearing 'police-style uniforms', entered the lobby and started shooting at random, witnesses said.

Witnesses, including several children were forced to flee the scene as shots were fired.
Police said all three victims were in their 20s or 30s. One was pronounced dead at the scene.
