Remembrance service takes place of Andrew Johnston 30 years on

Belfast Telegraph says The family of a teenager shot dead in north Belfast 30 years ago returned to the scene on Thursday night for a memorial service.

Andrew Johnston was only 17 when he was gunned down at a video shop where he was working on the Crumlin Road, yards from where his friends had been gathering in the Youth Fellowship at Ballysillan Elim Church.

It was said at the time that he was killed in retaliation for the murders at the Sean Graham bookmakers on the Ormeau Road two weeks previous. Loyalist paramilitaries in the Ulster Defence Association (UDA) opened fire in the south Belfast bookmakers in February 1992, killing five civilians and wounding another nine.

Andrew was a member of Ballysillan Elim Church, where Jack McKee had been pastor for ten years at the time.
