The killet not named? I wonder why?

Skye reels from ‘worst day in its history’ as shooting victim named 
A man who was killed in a series of violent attacks that injured three others on and around the Isle of Skye has been named by police as John MacKinnon. The 47-year-old was shot dead at his home in Sasaig in the south-east of the island. He was killed at about 9.30am on Wednesday, half an hour after a woman was seriously injured in a stabbing in nearby Tarskavaig. She was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth University hospital in Glasgow. Two others were later injured in a second shooting in Dornie, Kyle of Lochalsh, 30 miles (50km) north-east on mainland Scotland. Police Scotland said a 39-year-old man had been arrested in connection with what the force was treating as linked firearm incidents at the two properties. The arrested man had also been taken to hospital by air ambulance.Chief Supt Conrad Trickett, the Highlands and Islands division policing commander, said: “A 39-year-old man has been arrested in connection with all of the incidents, which are being treated as linked, and there is no threat to the wider community. The thoughts of myself and colleagues across Police Scotland are very much with the family and friends of Mr MacKinnon and the three people who remain injured.” According to local accounts, it is believed MacKinnon was attempting to save others by trying to to prevent his attacker from getting hold of a gun. Paramedics attended the scene but could not save MacKinnon. One old school friend said: “John was one of the kindest men.” Trickett said the incidents were contained and there was no wider threat to the public. “Incidents such as this are thankfully extremely rare but I understand this will have a significant effect on the local community in these rural areas. There will a significant police presence in the area over the coming days and we will be working with partners to provide support to the local community. He appealed for witnesses to call 101, quoting reference 0713 of 10 August. The local MSP Kate Forbes said it was “the worst day that I can ever recall in the history of Skye and Lochalsh”. She added: “It feels like our very heart has been ripped apart.” Source
