George Nkencho, who died following a disturbance outside his home in Clonee, west Dublin, last month, was shot twice in the back by armed gardai, an independent pathology report is said to have found.
A pathologist hired by Phelim O’Neill, the Nkencho family’s solicitor, found one of two back wounds suffered by Nkencho was from a bullet entering his lower back and exiting his upper right chest.
The state-conducted post-mortem examination found the 27-year-old was shot six times in total, with an interim cause of death believed to be two gunshots to vital organs.
Professor Jack Crane, a former state pathologist for Northern Ireland, was hired by O’Neill for the family’s own investigation, and conducted a preliminary post-mortem examination at Dublin city mortuary on January
