A second man has been arrested by detectives investigating the murder of a takeaway driver in Belfast.

Father-of-six Dan Murray was shot in the head after he drove into Lady Street in the west of the city on Monday.

The 55-year-old, who was known to police and had been targeted by dissidents previously, was lured to the location with a bogus food order.

The victim had been dispatched in his black Ford Focus to deliver a food order to a house in the Divis area, where he was shot dead.

A 53-year-old man was arrested by detectives in west Belfast yesterday.

The suspect was last night assisting officers with enquiries into the killing.

It came after a 38-year-old man who was detained on Wednesday was yesterday released unconditionally.

The murder of Mr Murray was the fourth gun attack in the city in just four days.
