Car park murder victim becomes another victim to the ongoing loyalist feud was a member of SEA UDA

The man shot dead in front of his son in a supermarket car park in County Down on Sunday has been named locally as Colin Horner (pictured below).

South East Antrim UDA feud victim Colin Horner.

Colin Horner paid the same price for badmouthing his one-time UDA god-fathers as his own former South East Antrim UDA boss Geordie Gilmore.

He was living just across Belfast Lough in Bangor, where he was gunned down in a retail mall car park in front of young kids in broad daylight yesterday afternoon.

The car park where the assassination took place.

James Colin Honer, 35, was holding his three-year-old boy in his arms as the gunman opened fire, he was unmasked.

Sainsbury’s employee Robson McCracken told the Belfast Telegraph: “A car drew up and shot a man in the car park, just outside the store. There was panic in the store, with trolleys abandoned everywhere. “First aiders from Sainsbury’s kept the victim alive until the ambulance team arrived,” he said.

Sources say some of those very close to pointing the finger at and identifying those who carried out the murder of Gilmore. Meantime, the catalogue of loyalist gangs internal feud escalate. Just last August former UDA heavy John ‘Bonzer’ Borland was the victim of a point-blank assassination.

Boreland and fellow convicted criminal Andre “The Bookie’s Brigadier’ Shoukri were both kicked out of the mainstream UDA and were taken under the wing of the SEA Brigade, who had already split from the loyalist terror gang’s so-called ‘inner council’!

But the fact remains that the file of ‘get-away-with-it’ loyalist feud continues to grow, and the RUC/PSNI have still not charged anyone on the ‘loyalist feud’ with any paramilitary offences including membership of an illegal organistion? When this is quite the opposite on the republican side (political policing) comes to mind.

Meanwhile, the murders continue to grow, dating back to the UVF killing of Bobby Moffett on Belfast’s Shankill Road in May, 2010, and before that the shooting dead of UDA godfather Jim ‘Doris Day’ Gray in East Belfast in October 2005, among other blatant killings that are still on the books and still not solved.

 

Two men appear in court over murder of SEA UDA loyalist George Gilmore

 Latest news: In ongoing loyalist feud but the true question remains:”Why were they not charged with belonging to an illegal organistion”?

 Two men have appeared in court charged with murdering high-profile loyalist George Gilmore.

Mr Gilmore, who was 44, was shot in the neck while he was in his car in Carrickfergus on Monday afternoon.

He died in hospital on Tuesday.

George GilmoreGeorge Gilmore was shot in a “ruthless attack in broad daylight” police said.

Brian Roy McLean, 35, of The Birches Carrick and 28-year-old Samuel David McMaw of Starbog Road, Kilwaughter appeared at Laganside Court on Saturday.

They were jointly charged with murdering Mr Gilmore on Monday, the attempted murders of two other people on the same day and possessing a firearm and ammunition with intent to endanger life.

In court, both the accused spoke only to confirm their names and that they understood the charge.

There was no application for bail and both were remanded in custody, to appear again by video-link next month.

As they were taken from the dock, supporters who had packed into the court leapt to their feet, clapping and cheering.

Johnny “Mad Dog” Adair

Adair, 49, is accused of lashing out at fellow Loyalist Ian Truesdale after the pair bumped into each other last Sunday. Truesdale, 52, was allegedly knocked to the ground after he was punched in the head. The incident is said to have been witnessed  by two young children. The pair, both from Belfast, have known each other for three decades. They served with the UDA’s C Company. Truesdale was in Troon, where Adair lived until recently moving to Irvine, when he was allegedly attacked as he came out of a supermarket. Adair denies any wrongdoing. In 2003, Truesdale was accused of murdering Jonathan Stewart, 22, who was shot at a house party in North Belfast on December 27, 2002 but the charges were later dropped. Adair was bailed to appear at a later date.
