Fatal Llanbedrog car park shooting probe continues

WALES: Police are continuing to investigate the death of an 18-year-old man who was shot in a pub car park in Gwynedd. The incident happened at the Ship Inn in Llanbedrog just after 00:00 GMT on Sunday. The man, who was local to the area and said to be a keen hunter, died at the scene. A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out later. Four people were arrested as detectives from North Wales Police launched an inquiry. Supt Nigel Harrison said: “I would like to reassure the community that this is an isolated incident involving local people and there is no wider threat to the public.” Llanbedrog councillor Angela Russell said it had been a solemn weekend for the community. “The community has had a big shock,” she said. “It’s such a beautiful and quiet place and something like this has happened in the middle of the village – they can’t believe it.”
