Three charged with murder after Anthony Condron killed on night out in Liverpool

THREE MEN have been charged with murder after Anthony Condron was killed on a night out in Liverpool. 

Merseyside Police launched a murder investigation following the fatal assault in Liverpool City Centre in the early hours of Saturday, February 3 2018.

Emergency services were called shortly after 1am, following a report that a man in his 20s had been assaulted during an altercation in the Maya bar on Wood Street.

He was taken to hospital and sadly pronounced dead at 2.24am.

Previously, police said they believed it was an unprovoked attack on the young man, while he was on a night out with his girlfriend and friends, which 'tragically resulted in the loss of his life.'

Merseyside Police have this morning charged three men with murder.

Jamie Addison, 22, from Bridgewater Street, Liverpool, Joseph Booth, 24, from Ashbourne Road, Aigburth and Paul Byrne, 23, from Ribbledale Road, Mossley Hill have all been charged with murder.

All three have been remanded in custody to appear at Liverpool Magistrates Court this morning, Monday February 5.

A close friend of Mr Condron's family set up a fund for his loved ones to help towards his funeral.
