It is believed that Mr Aitkens may have spent time in hospital after being stabbed in an earlier attack several months ago.
One local resident who asked not to be named said: 'He was stabbed once and it looks like they came back to finish the job.'London:
Friends say he got into the wrong crowd and was also stabbed last year, allegedly by the same attackers who gunned him down.Seems both had lifestyles that ensured someone intended they kept that appointment in Samarrah. The only thing missing in this second one is there's no pics of him flashing gang signs....
