A HEARTBROKEN mother, whose youngest son died in a shooting tragedy, has spoken of her torment for the first time.
Angela Knott, from Aghadowey, yearns to spend just a few more minutes - or even seconds - with 27-year-old Scott who suffered fatal injuries inflicted by his legally held gun.
Twenty-two months have passed but scientist Angela's grief is still raw. She hopes that her story might prevent other families from suffering the same unbearable agony.
Mum-of-two Angela's world was cruelly shattered on January 5 last year when police officers arrived unexpectedly at her door.
She recalled: "Scott had seemed fine when he waved goodbye to me the previous evening from his home in Castleroe. I was alone and making bread for him and his girlfriend Stephanie when the police arrived.
