A man arrested in connection with the murder of a former dissident republican has been released by police.

The 24-year-old was freed unconditionally, a Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) spokeswoman said.

Tommy Crossan was shot dead as he sat in a hut at a fuel business off Springfield Road in west Belfast.
