AN Irish man has been shot dead in Spain in a case of mistaken identity.

Trevor O’Neill, from Drimnagh, Dublin, was shot four times in the back after a gunman linked to the Kinahan cartel mistook him for the nephew of Gerry Hutch.

Trevor, a Dublin City Council worker, was staying at the same Mallorca resort as a member of the Hutch family, who had previously received death threats.

He was killed shortly after 9pm last night in front of family members and friends just after finishing a meal.

The fatal shooting occured outside a supermarket in Costa de la Calma beside the popular Santa Ponsa resort.

Spanish police are hunting three suspects.

It is the tenth killing linked to the Kinahan-Hutch feud since the slaying of Gary Hutch in Spain last year.
