Jim Donegan murder detectives appeal for information
MURDER detectives probing the gangland-style killing of Jim Donegan in west Belfast have appealed to motorists who were in the area on the day of the fatal shooting to come forward.
The 43-year-old was shot eight times as he waited to pick up his 13-year-old son outside St Mary's Grammar School at around 3.15pm on December 4.
Mr Donegan, known as JD, was shot in the head and chest as he sat in his red Porsche Panamera, registration JDZ34. He died at the scene.
CCTV footage released by the PSNI shows the suspected gunman, who was wearing hi-vis gear, walking to the scene and later fleeing on foot.
Detective Chief Inspector Pete Montgomery today made a renewed appealed for information.
"I would like to hear from anyone who was driving in the area of the Glen Road and Clonelly Avenue around 3.10pm and just afterwards as I need to eliminate your car from my enquiries," he said.
"I also need to see any dash-cam footage which could be of use to my investigation."
