MetiNews.Com - Claims that notorious gang member received information which helped him find out where John Kinsella lived
Breaking News ! A gangland hitman who shot dead a Liverpool man in front of his partner received a tip-off about where to find his victim, it has been claimed. Mark Fellows shot John Kinsella four times in front of his pregnant partner on a spring morning in 2018, three years after he had murdered Salford man Paul Massey. Fellows, a gang member from Salford, shot Mr Kinsella twice in the back and then twice in the head. Fellows has already said that he targeted Mr Kinsella because he knew that the 53-year-old Liverpool man blamed him for the shooting of his close friend Paul Massey. Massey, a notorious figure from Salford, died in a machine gun attack outside his own home. Mr Kinsella had a long criminal record and was known to have been an 'enforcer' within Merseyside's underworld. Fellows was recalled to prison after the Massey shooting because police suspected he was implicated in a gang war. When he was released from prison in August 2017 he moved to Warrington. John Kinsella (Image: PA) Fellows has already claimed that his licence conditions prevented him from returning to the Salford area. Prosecutors have so far not revealed how Fellows was able to find out where out Mr Kinsella lived and what his movements might be. A source with knowledge of the situation has now told the ECHO that Fellows received a tip-off about where Kinsella lived in Rainhill and what his routines were. The source said: "How would Fellows have known that Kinsella walked his dogs on a Saturday morning? "He had some help from someone who knew all about John Kinsella. "Fellows was not from the area but knew where John lived and what his routines were at the weekend. He had help from someone local who knew all about John." In a letter to a national newspaper last year, Fellows revealed that that he took the decision to murder Kinsella before the Liverpool man could get to him. He said: "I moved to Warrington, got a job, 12-hour night shifts, making ready meals for supermarkets. I wanted to keep my head down and get on with my life. However I soon discovered that Kinsella lived nearby. "He was telling everyone that he wanted revenge for Massey. So rather than wait for him to find me, I shot him too.
. I have no reason to lie because I have nothing to gain and nothing to lose. " Fellows caught up with Mr Kinsella on a sunny Saturday morning in the Rainhill Stoops area as the Liverpool man walked his collection of American bulldogs with his partner. The woman let out a scream when her partner collapsed to the floor after being shot through the spine. Fellows then fired two warning shots at the woman as she charged towards him before he shot Kinsella twice in the head. The "hysterical" mum-to-be waved down workmen and traffic officers, before one labourer made the first 999 call, at 6.58am on May 5 2018.

Fellows sped from the scene on a mountain bike, and then met up with Steven Boyle who was his back-up man on the day. Fellows received a whole life sentence after being found guilty of murdering Paul Massey and John Kinsella. Boyle received a life sentence for the role he played in the murder of the Liverpool man. Fellows, now 40, said to have been a foot-soldier in a gang known as the Anti-A team. Last week he was handed another life sentence for his part in a Salford gang war. Manchester Crown court heard that Fellows helped organise a machete attack on Aaron Williams, an associate of Salford’s A Team gang.
Gangs behind murders of John Kinsella and Paul Massey sponsoring new wave of violent crime
Judge Sir Peter Openshaw said Fellows had been described as a ‘gun for hire’. He said: “There was no gun here, but it is obvious he was recruited because he was the hitman,” he added. “Here, he was extracted by others to attack Williams and he did so with a ruthless determination.” The judge said Fellows is ‘obviously’ dangerous and handed him another life sentence, which will run alongside the existing whole life sentence for the murders of Mr Kinsella and Massey. The case was the third major trial which heard about the gang war between two rival factions in Salford. The dispute, said to have started when a drink was thrown in a nightclub, formed the background to the murders of Mr Kinsella and Massey. Earlier this year the ECHO revealed how some of the criminals who organised the murder of Massey had sponsored a new wave of violence in the Warrington area over an unpaid drug debt.
