Man charged with murder outside N Ireland supermarket

A man has been charged with a murder outside a supermarket in Northern Ireland.

Colin Horner, 35, was shot dead in the car park in Bangor, Co Down, in front of his three-year-old son last May.

A Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) statement said: " Detectives have charged a 34-year-old man with the murder of Colin Horner in Bangor on Sunday, 28 May and with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

"He is expected to appear before Newtownards Magistrates' Court tomorrow, Friday 06 October."

A number of others have been charged in connection with the murder.

When suspect Ryan Graham Smyth, 29, was charged earlier this year, the court was told the shooting was part of an ongoing feud amongst loyalist paramilitaries.

Mr Horner was shot dead by a lone gunman moments after he had put his son in the back of his car outside the Sainsbury's store.
