Man Shot Dead by Gunman in Grange Hill, Westmoreland
The police are currently probing the death of a man who was shot and killed by an unknown assailant in the community of Grange Hill in Westmoreland on Saturday night.
The deceased has been identified as Dennis Sewell, who was a construction worker/businessman of Mint Road in the parish.
