How that Handgun ban works in full.
TWO hitmen attempting a gangland execution were killed themselves yesterday when armed pub customers chased and shot them dead in front of children playing football. ...
Witnesses suggested that the incident happened shortly after 2.30pm when two men of mixed race entered the pub during the busy lunchtime period.
They appeared to single out and shoot two white men in the crowded bar before fleeing from the pub and across the playing fields to their getaway car, a black Mondeo, parked some distance away.
At this point a number of people in the pub, obviously armed, gave chase. One of the fleeing men was shot in the back of the head.
The second man stopped and turned to see what had happened and was shot in the side of his body. Then, witnesses suggest, he was shot in the head “execution-style”.
