The PSNI has appealed for dashcam footage in connection with the murder of Raymond Johnston.

The 28-year-old was shot in the chest at his home in Glenbawn Avenue, Poleglass at around 8pm on Tuesday February 13. The attack happened in front of his partner and 11-year-old child.

On Tuesday evening detectives from the Special Crime Branch revisited the scene of his murder in west Belfast, on a date which marks one week since his killing.

The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Geoff Boyce, said: “We are still in the early stages of this investigation and although progress has been made, we still need more assistance from the community.

“We have set up an incident room and, we are exploring a number of possible lines of enquiry. We are reviewing CCTV footage from the area, but we also need the continued help from local people.

“I would also ask any members of the public who have a dash cam fitted to their vehicle, and were travelling on Glenbawn Avenue, Glenbawn Square, Bryanswell Road, Bellsteel Road, Pantridge Road, Stewartstown Road or Colinwell Road between 7pm and 9pm on Tuesday, February 13 to contact detectives at Musgrave.

"You may have footage that could help us piece together what happened on Tuesday night and lead us to those behind this brutal act."

Anyone with information or who may have witnessed anything in connection with the incident is asked to contact detectives on the non-emergency number 101, quoting the reference 1192 of 13/02/2018, or to ask to speak to detectives at the incident room at Musgrave Street.

Alternatively the public can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
