Bryan McGlynn Murder Appeal

03 Jun 2007

Police have issued an appeal for help from the public about the murder of 28-year-old Bryan McGlynn in Londonderry.

Mr McGlynn was shot by a gunman who burst into his house in the Fountain Hill area of the city in the early hours of Sunday morning, 3 June.

The officer in charge of the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Frankie Taylor, said it was important that those people with information came forward.

He said: "Bryan McGlynn was asleep in bed with his girlfriend when he was wakened by the sound of his front door being smashed in. As he started to get out of bed and get dressed, a gunman burst into the bedroom and shot him dead.

"It was 3.45am on Sunday 3 June and despite the unsocial hour, there were quite a few people in the area of Fountain Hill.

"We know this from studying CCTV footage and talking to some witnesses. But what we really need is for everyone who was in that area between 3am and 3.45am to come forward and talk to us. This appeal applies to people who were there on foot or who were driving down Fountain Hill towards Spencer Road.

"It is absolutely vital to this investigation that we talk to these people. They may well hold vital clues which could assist my officers in apprehending Bryan's killer or killers."

Police need to hear from:

  1. Anyone in the vicinity of Fountain Hill / Spencer Road, Derry on 3 June between 3am-4am
  2. Anyone driving down Fountain Hill onto Spencer Road between 3.30am and 3.45am
