CCTV images of suspects involved in the murder of Warren Crossan have been released

Police investigating the broad day light murder of a Belfast man during the summer have released new CCTV footage of the suspected gunmen.

Father-of-two Warren Crossan was shot dead on Saint Katharine's Road in the St James's area of Belfast on June 27.

The 28-year-old was targeted in what is believed to be a revenge attack following the murder of gangland enforcer Robbie Lawler in Ardoyne in April.

The new CCTV images show two suspects crossing the Falls Road at the junction of the Whiterock Road and St James's Road on the morning of the murder.

A man on a purple coloured mountain bike, according to police, arrived from the direction of Turf Lodge and then turned back on to the Whiterock Road at around 8.37am.

Around 40 minutes later he is again seen with the second suspect on the Whiterock Road before crossing over the Falls Road and then onto St James's Road where they turn onto St James's Crescent at around 8.37am.

Speaking of the suspects' next movements, Detective Chief Inspector Michelle Shaw said: “I believe they have come directly from the Whiterock estate area.

“They then wait in the vicinity until Warren Crossan arrives at his mother’s house in Rodney Parade at approximately 12.20pm. The gunmen then appear on foot from an alley way between St James Road and Rodney Drive and chase Mr Crossan into St Katharine’s Road where he is shot multiple times and subsequently sadly dies in the street.

“I believe the gunmen then escape on foot via the same alleyway and I am appealing to anyone who recognises them from the CCTV, or who has information about the murder, to come forward to police.

“The attack in a busy residential street in broad daylight was simply reckless. These gunmen did not give any thought to the risk posed to local people in this community when they ran through the streets firing shots, at least one of which struck a vehicle owned by a resident.”
