Killers on camera Shocking CCTV footage shows suspected killers in Mark Hall murder as police issue appeal

'This violent, deadly attack has left behind a heartbroken family'

CCTV footage showing some of the last public sightings of murder victim Mark Hall has been released by police as they issued a new appeal for information. 

Detectives investigating the murder of Hall in west Belfast on Saturday, December 18 last, publicly published the video in a bid to help catch his killers.

The early part of the footage captures Wall as he walks along a lane carrying two shopping bags as he makes his way through the St James’s area towards his family home at Rodney Drive.

The scene then switches to a street view of the area where the two gunmen are seen arriving and the vehicle they travelled in.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil McGuinness said: “Mark Hall was shot dead in a barbaric gun attack on Rodney Drive in west Belfast, on Saturday, December 18.

“That afternoon, at approximately 4.35pm, two gunmen fired shots through the front window of his family home. Mark was critically wounded, and sadly later died in hospital.

“To encourage witnesses to come forward, we have today (28 Jan 2022) released CCTV footage.

“It shows Mark’s last movements, as he travelled through the St James’s area to the family home on Rodney Drive.

“The footage also shows a silver vehicle, which we believe had a yellow taxi sign on its roof, turn from Donegal Road into St James’s Crescent and stop.

“We believe the footage then shows the two gunmen exit from the rear passenger door of the vehicle, before they walk along an alleyway which runs behind the houses on St James’s Crescent and Rodney Drive.”
