A 53-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of takeaway delivery driver Daniel Murray in west Belfast.

Mr Murray died after he was shot while making a delivery on Lady Street, near the Grosvenor Road, on Monday.

Police said they believed the 55-year-old victim had been lured to the area by a bogus call.

They described his murder as “horrific”.

The suspect was detained in the west of the city on Thursday evening.

A 38-year-old man arrested on Wednesday was last night released unconditionally.
