    Greater Manchester Police have relaunched an appeal over the killing of Louis Braithwaite over 10 years ago.

    On Tuesday 29 January 2008, Louis was at the William Hill betting shop with friends on Mauldeth Road West in Withington when he was fatally shot by a masked man.

    Despite the 16-year-old’s best attempts to take cover, Louis was hit twice, sustaining injuries to his shoulder and abdomen which ultimately took his life.

    The killer fled the scene in a black VW Golf with the registration WG07 YXY which was seen speeding down Yew Tree Road before turning onto Old Moat Lane, where it crossed the roundabout on the wrong side of the road and disappeared out of sight.

    The police say a £50,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Louis’ killer remains available.
