Friends and family last night held a vigil for north Belfast murder victim Conor McKee.

A touching tribute from partner Michelle read: "To my lover and our daddy - we will miss you forever."

Mr McKee's body was found by his mother at his Glenpark Street home last Thursday. He had been shot a number of times.

The father-of-two had been on bail over drugs offences.

Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway said: "We have had a very positive response from Conor's friends after our appeal last week.

"We also appealed to a person who phoned police in the early hours of last Friday morning with information about the murder to call back. That person has yet to do so."

He continued: "Conor was seen in the area of Rosapenna Street and Oldpark Road at 6pm last Thursday evening. We believe he was shot in his home at Glenpark Street at 6.15pm.

"I am appealing to anyone who saw Conor walking from the Oldpark area back to Glenpark Street between 6pm and 6.15pm, either on his own or with someone, to contact us."

Two men arrested over the murder on Friday were later released on police bail.
