Did the former IRA member Martin McGuinness kill anyone?

He was never charged with killing anyone, and he didn't admit to killing anyone. Speaking in a TV interview in 2015, he said:

“I never talk about shooting anybody. But I do acknowledge that I was a member of the IRA and as a member of the IRA I obviously engaged in fighting back against the British army.”

His interviewer, Eamonn Mallie then asked: “You mean killing, Martin, don’t you?” McGuinness responded:

“What I am not going to do is give people a sensational headline by saying on such and such a night I was involved in a gun battle with the British army and 25 British soldiers were killed. I am not into that and I am not going to get into that.”
