Man (37) arrested in connection with Raymond Johnston murder released

A 37-year-old man arrested in connection with the murder of Raymond Johnston has been released unconditionally.

Mr Johnston (28) died after being shot at a house in Glenbawn Avenue in west Belfast, just before 8pm on February 13.

He was killed by a shotgun blast in front of an 11-year-old girl and his partner.

The man, arrested under the Terrorism Act by detectives from Serious Crime Branch, has now been released.

Last month four men were arrested in connection with the death of Mr Johnston but were subsequently released.

People arrested under The Terrorism Act must be charged, released pending report to the Public Prosecution Service or released unconditionally – bail is not permitted under this legislation.
