Police name delivery driver killed in Belfast

The Police Service of Northern Ireland have named a father of one who was shot at close range by a lone gunman as he stood outside a Domino's Pizza in Belfast.

26-year-old Kieran McManus, who was known to police, was shot several times as he stood talking to friends outside the pizza delivery store where he worked. He died a short time later in hospital. A dark red Astra was found burnt out near the crime scene.

"Nothing justifies the brutal attack on Kieran and the death of a young man. Today we have, on Easter Sunday, a mother mourning the loss of her son, and that is a very sad state of affairs.

What happened in Kennedy Way last night was a brutal and ruthless attack, which has no place in society.

This investigation will look at Kieran's activities, but today Kieran is a victim. We are keeping an open mind to the motive and we are working on a number of lines of inquiry.

– PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Karen Baxter
