Gym slay­ing

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

SOME gym users de­scribed fa­ther of four Kevin Maguire as very friendly and ap­proach­able. In the out­side world, it was a dif­fer­ent mat­ter.

Maguire had risen to be­come a feared un­der­world en­forcer for The Car­tel.

Even so, the drugs bosses didn’t like him and wanted him dead.

As Maguire and his side­kick Nathan Jones swapped quips with one of the Liver­pool gym’s newer mem­bers, Danny Be­couarn, their killer waited calmly and smiled.

He had them re­laxed and to­tally un­aware – all he had to do was wait for the right mo­ment to make sure each shot counted.

Sud­denly, he reached for a can­vas bag and pulled out a long- bar­relled hand­gun from inside.

He aimed the re­volver at Maguire.

At close range, be blasted the door­man with one shot.

Maguire was killed in­stantly. Nat­u­rally, Jones was ter­ri­fied and im­me­di­ately be­gan run­ning for the door.

Coolly, Be­couarn moved to­wards him, took aim at his heart and fired. A third shot was fired be­fore the as­sas­sin es­caped.

Nathan Jones then man­aged to stay on his feet. He stag­gered into a chang­ing room be­fore col­laps­ing.

He lived for a few more min­utes be­fore dy­ing on his way to hospi­tal.
