Llanbedrog shooting: victim died from ‘single head wound’


Bodfuan Shoot

It’s been confirmed that a teenager shot dead outside a pub on the Llyn Peninsula died from a single shotgun wound to the head.

Peter Colwell (18) was found in a vehicle outside the Ship Inn in Llanbedrog at just after 12.15am on Sunday morning. Four local men – known friends to the victim – have been arrested and bailed.

Detectives said a post-mortem examination carried out by several experts would help assist them in reconstructing the events that led to the fatal shooting.

On Monday, police said they were treating the incident as a murder inquiry, but were keeping an open mind about the circumstances. Mr Colwell’s family have been informed of the post mortem and are still being supported by family liaison officers.
