From December 2013:
A man who gunned down a drinker in a Birmingham pub calculated 'assassination' has been jailed for life.
When Paul Davies fired five shots at close range into 33-year-old Marlon O'Reilly it may have been a case of mistaken identity... The shooting at the Dovecote pub in Yardley on May 10, the court was told, was likely to have been a revenge attack for an incident at a gym when a number of men were attacked earlier that day.
The judge said "You were in the pub for less than 45 seconds. It was a preplanned and calculated execution." He said it was possible the bullets had been meant for someone sitting next to Mr O'Reilly. The judge added: "This was a pre-meditated assassination of a kind and gentle man who had done nothing to bring it upon himself."
