GUNNED DOWN ... police hope a �5,000 reward might lead them to Kevin Nightingale's killer.

Police have revealed they have received a number of calls in connection with the 1996 killing of nightclub doorman Kevin Nightingale.

The 33-year-old was gunned down on the doorstep of his home in Drake Close, South Shields in the early hours of February 17.

On the 18th anniversary of his death his family made an emotional appeal to the public to ask for anyone with information to come forward as police announced a £5,000 reward for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

Detective Chief Inspector Christina Barrett said: “We have had a really positive response from the public and have taken a number of calls in relation to the appeal. We are continuing to receive information and I’d urge anyone who knows anything to get in touch with police, anonymously if they prefer.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
