London, Mar 17 (ANI): A group of gangsters who left a hand grenade in the bushes outside Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish's home, have been jailed for life.
The gang of five, led by Kirk Bradley and Anthony 'Fat Tony' Downes, both 26, was responsible for numerous shootings across Liverpool, England, a kidnapping in which they shot their victim and dumped him in woods and a string of bungled assassination attempts.
But their weapon of choice was more often the hand grenade whether they were carrying out their own violent vendettas against rival crooks, or doing the dirty work for unscrupulous kingpins within Liverpool's criminal underworld.
They were both jailed for life with a minimum of 22 years after being convicted in their absence of conspiracy to possess firearms with intent to endanger life and conspiracy to cause damage with intent to endanger life, The Daily Mail reports.
Three others admitted possessing firearms and causing criminal damage with intent to endanger life and were jailed for life.
Gary Wilson, 27, was sentenced to a minimum of 16 years, Joseph Farrell, 23, will serve a minimum of 12 years and Craig Riley, 25, will serve a minimum of 14 years.
According to the report, the group left a grenade on Dalglish's front wall in July 2009, when he was not Liverpool's manager, but it was not intended for him.
It was believed to be intended for wealthy businessman John Ball and a neighbour of Dalglish. (ANI)
