PSNI officers investigating Mr Murray's murder described the killing as "horrific".

Two days after Mr Murray was murdered, the Workers Party held a protest against the recent upsurge in paramilitary activity on the Grosvenor Road, close to the scene of the fatal shooting.

Community and political representatives at the rally called for an immediate end to gun attacks and other violence in Belfast following a series of shootings in the north and west of the city.

Update: The 32-year-old man arrested on Monday evening has been released unconditionally.
