Second man arrested over murder of Raymond Johnston

A second man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Raymond Johnston.

Detectives arrested a 57-year-old man under the Terrorism Act on Thursday.

He is currently being questioned at Musgrave Serious Crime Suite.

Mr Johnston was blasted twice in the chest in front of his partner and her 11-year-old daughter after two masked gunmen entered his home on Glenbawn Avenue in Poleglass just before 8pm last Tuesday.

The PSNI earlier carried out seven planned searches in west Belfast.

A 34-year-old man arrested in the Poleglass area on Wednesday has been released unconditionally.
