Detectives from the PSNI's Major Investigation Team have revisited the west Belfast home where Joe Reilly was shot dead as the investigation to find his killers goes on.

Mr Reilly (43) had been at his Glenwood Court home in Poleglass on Thursday evening when a number of men stormed into his house and shot him dead.

Two people in the house were subsequently ordered into the kitchen and made to lie on the floor while Mr Reilly was kept in the living room.
