The local press certainly believed that this was just the shooting between two groups of soldiers and not an IRA ambush

And the Military Court of Inquiry came to the conclusion that he was shot accidently by another soldier

Other evidence points to the shot being fired by Pte Herbert Williams who was tried for murder and sentenced for manslaughter
