"Our continuing investigation has received widespread assistance from our local community, for which I am very grateful. “Enquires to date indicate that Gerald was deliberately targeted and shot."

"My dad believed in the good in people and in life, and in the importance of family, friendship and love. He taught me that we can change, that to forgive brings freedom, and that we should believe in the best in people as no-one is perfect. I will miss my father who has been taken from us."
