The father of four was hit by shots fired through the window of his home at Derrymagowan near the town of Moy. The location is in the so-called 'murder triangle' area where Ulster Volunteer Force gunmen have been particularly active in recent years. A child was also injured in the attack.
The man was named as John Molloy. One immediate theory was that he may have been killed in mistake for a Sinn Fein councillor, Francie Molloy, who lives nearby.Reuse content
