‘Callous’ murder

SYDNEY: The shooting death of an elderly bottle shop attendant on the NSW central coast on Monday has baffled and shocked police, who describe the shooting as “callous and senseless”.

The detective in charge of the investigation. Sergeant Pat O’Brien, said yesterday police did not know why 62-year-old Bernard Francis Morton, of Wyoming, was shot.

They believed the gunman’s main motive was robbery.

Mr Morton was shot once in his chest with a sawn-off shotgun at The Grange Hotel in Wyoming, where he worked part-time, about 5 pm.

He died soon after, despite desperate attempts by ambulance officers to revive him.
