The family of a teenager who died after being shot in a Gwynedd pub car park have said he will be "sadly missed".

Peter Colwell, 18, was "a popular young man" who loved field sports and had just started a job he wanted "more than anything".

His family said they have "lost a beautiful soul".

Mr Colwell died from a single shot gun wound to the head, a post-mortem examination revealed.

A family statement, released through a police family liaison officer, said he will be "sadly missed by his mother, father, family and many friends".

"He left college last summer and went up north to work as a boy and came back a fine young man," it added.

Mr Colwell, from Capel Uchaf ,near Clynnog Fawr, was found at the Ship Inn in Llanbedrog on 5 February.

Four men have been bailed after a shotgun was recovered from the scene.
