An 18-year-old man has been shot dead in a pub car park in Llanbedrog, near Pwllheli, Gwynedd.

North Wales Police said the teenager was in a vehicle at the Ship Inn in the village when officers were called just after midnight on Sunday.

Officers said that the victim was local to the area.

Four people have been arrested, and forensic investigations are ongoing. Police said the family of the young man had been told.

The small village on the Llŷn Peninsula sits between Pwllheli and Abersoch, with a population of about 1,000 people, attracting many more visitors as a north Wales holiday destination in the summer months.

A police spokesman added: “Four men have been arrested and will be interviewed by detectives

“The man’s family has been informed and are being supported by the police.”

A post-mortem examination is expected to be carried out later, and the coroner for north-west Wales has also been informed of the death.
