The funeral of murder victim Malcolm McKeown has taken place in Lurgan.
Dozens of mourners gathered for the service at Emmanuel Church in the town on Saturday, following by internment in Kernan Cemetery.
Malcolm McKeown, 54, was gunned down at a filling station in Waringstown, Co Down last Monday.
Mr McKeown had a lengthy criminal past and lived in the Waringstown area. Police are "keeping an open mind" on the motive for his killing.
Two men arrested on suspicion of his murder were released unconditionally last Thursday.
His family said he will be lovingly remembered by his children Kirsty, Wayne and Malcolm and by his grandchildren Casey, Riley and Lexi-Rose.
They have asked for donations to be made to Connect Church and Emmanuel Church in his memory.
On Friday, the father-of-three's brother, convicted killer Clifford McKeown, failed in a High Court bid to secure temporary prison release for his murdered sibling's funeral.
