ASSASSIN who shot one of Britain’s most dangerous gangland bosses with an Uzi submachine pistol has been stabbed in prison.
On Saturday, Mark Fellows, 42, called The Iceman, was knifed in the head and neck at maximum security HMP Wakefield.
According to the MEN, the double killer was treated by prison physicians after surviving the cutting outside his cell.
Fellows was the “gun for hire” who used a submachine gun to murder Paul Massey, 55, in 2015.
“Mr Big” Massey, revered by younger gangs for his ferocity, had been involved in Manchester’s underground since he was 12 years old.
He was a key member in the Salford Firm, which used its criminal influence to mediate a gang war that raged in the city during the 1990s.
On July 26, 2015, however, Massey was getting out of his car on his Salford driveway when gang rival Fellows attacked, dressed in military fatigues.
The hitman, hired by The A Team gang, fired 18 rounds at Massey, leaving the 55-year-old bleeding to death from nine wounds.
Massey is said to have been targeted after an unsuccessful attempt to act as a mediator between warring Salford gangs in 2015.
Fellows was shot in the rear outside his grandmother’s house just two weeks after killing Massey.
Following Massey’s execution, The A Team shot seven-year-old Christian Hickey Jr. and his mother in their own house, shocking the nation.
Both were critically injured and were found in a pool of blood in their home’s hallway, with one bullet travelling through Mrs Hickey’s leg and into her son’s as he stood behind her.Police eventually apprehended The A Team’s commanders and imprisoned them for over 100 years.
Fellows was accused in June 2018 with the killings of both Massey and Massey’s close friend, Liverpool criminal John Kinsella.
After detectives intercepted data from his fitness monitor, he was sentenced to life in jail.
Fellows was shanked in prison for the second time on Saturday.
In February 2019, the hitman was taken to hospital with critical injuries when a frenzied inmate attacked him with a razor at HMP Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire.
According to a Prison Service representative, “we have a zero tolerance approach to violence and will always take strong action against those who break these rules.”
