Teenager Shot Dead At Pub In Wales

5th February 2017

Four people have been arrested after an 18-year-old man was shot dead in a pub car park in Llanbedrog, near Pwllheli, Gwynedd.

North Wales Police said the teenager was in a vehicle at the Ship Inn in the village when officers were called just after midnight today (Sunday 5 February).

The victim, who was local to the area and said to be a keen hunter, died at the scene.

His family has been told and a police appeal has been made for information.

Det Chf Insp Andrew Williams said: "We are keen to speak with anyone who was in the local area last night and who may have seen a number of males in a Land Rover Discovery vehicle at the location."

A police spokesman added: "Four men have been arrested and will be interviewed by detectives.

"The man's family has been informed and are being supported by the police."

A post-mortem examination is expected to be carried out at a later stage, and the coroner for north west Wales has also been informed of the death.
