15 year old shot dead man re-arrested on manslaughter

Police can confirm that the 35 year old man from Barrow, who was detained in custody on suspicion of GBH, has now been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, following the death of the 15 year old boy.

Formal identification processes are taking place in respect of the boy and until this is complete and the family have had time to tell all loved ones, it would be inappropriate to send any confirmation out at this time.

We would ask that you respect this process and give the family time.
