Gardai know teenage killers identity

Limerick Gardai have revealed that they now know the identity of the teenage boy who gunned down John Ryan on July 7th 2003.

Mr Ryan was shot by a pillion rider of a motorcycle on the high road in Thomandgate while he helped lay a patio at his friend’s house.

The motorbike was found burned out at St Mary’s Park, just a few hundred yards from the scene. Mr. Ryan died shortly after in Limerick Regional Hospital.

The teen was already arrested and questioned after the crime but Gardai say they did not have enough evidence to bring him down.
