Detectives investigating the murder of a man in Newry last week have announced a £20,000 reward for information.

Mark Lovell was shot dead as he arrived home at Ardcarn Park in the city last Thursday.

The 58-year-old was shot several times at close range.

Police have described it as a "ruthless execution" and believe his killers lay in wait for him.

One line of inquiry was that the shooting was part of a cross-border crime feud linked to drugs.

The crime charity Crimestoppers has made the reward available for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

The charity is completely independent of the PSNI.
