A 27-year-old man who was being questioned by the PSNI in connection with the murder of a Dublin criminal in Belfast at the weekend has been released without charge. 

Two other men and a teenager are still being questioned over the shooting of Robbie Lawlor outside a house in the Ardoyne on Saturday morning.

The two men, aged 33 and 30, and the youth, aged 17, are being questioned at Musgrave police station.

The PSNI believes a single gunman fired several shots at Lawlor, who was a suspect in the murder of 17-year-old Keane Mulready-Woods from Drogheda earlier this year, but the murder weapon has not been recovered.

The PSNI have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them.
