Having shot several people on Fairview Road, Ryan now ran towards Hungerford Common. There he found father of two Francis Butler walking his dead. Ryan shot the man dead on the spot. A cycling teenager was his next target, but Ryan's aim was off and the boy managed to cycle out of range before he could fire another shot.
Ryan then moved onto Priory Avenue with the town in chaos and communication between police helicopters and officers on the ground in confusion - further compounded by the presence of media helicopters, other emergency services, a profusion of emergency calls from the public and Ryan's own erratic movements.
