Two men arrested in connection with the death of a man who was shot outside a school on Tuesday afternoon have been released without charge.

The PSNI said two men, aged 49 and 51, were detained last night following a number of searches in the west Belfast area.

Jim Donegan, 43, was shot in the head as he waited in his car to collect his teenage son at St Mary's Grammar School on the Glen Road.

Mr Donegan's 13-year-old son is a pupil at St Mary's Grammar School, near where the attack happened.

More than 1,000 pupils were leaving for home at the time of the attack.

Teachers shielded the car in which Mr Donegan sat from the view of children.

The school reopened for classes today.
