The son of a murdered dissident republican chief was gunned down outside his west Belfast home on Saturday for providing the getaway car used in the killing of Dublin hitman Robbie Lawlor.

Warren Crossan – who was on court bail facing cocaine dealing and motoring charges – was shot dead outside his mother’s home in the St James’ area of the city in the afternoon.

His assassins were acting on the orders of gangland figures in the south with connections to slain contract killer Robbie Lawlor.
