The family of a sixteen-year-old boy shot dead by the British Army in Lenadoon in 1972 is mounting a legal challenge against the PSNI’s
A LENADOON man whose son walked in on a burglar in the middle of robbing the family home has welcomed the eight-month jail sentence handed down to the culprit. Christopher ‘Cricky’ Reid, 18, with an address at Hannahglen Heights, was found guilty of burglary with intent to steal at a home in the Carrigart Avenue area of Lenadoon on January 8.
The family of a teenager gunned down by the British Army in the early years of the Troubles are appealing for witnesses to the killing to come forward. Gerard Gibson was shot in the head in Carrigart Avenue in Lenadoon on July 11, 1972. His family are hoping the investigation into the 16-year-old’s murder will be reopened and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
