Tommy Crossan murder suspect is freed

A man arrested in connection with the murder of Tommy Crossan in west Belfast has been released without charge.

The 24-year-old was detained on Friday by detectives and released unconditionally on Saturday.

Father-of-six Mr Crossan, a 43-year-old former senior figure in the Continuity IRA, was shot dead at the Peter Pan complex on the Springfield Road on Friday, April 18.

He was hit a number of times in the upper body and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police recently returned to the scene of the murder and made a fresh appeal for information centred on an old-style red BMW coupe, registration OEZ 9177, which was found partially burned out in the Beechmount Grove area a short time after Mr Crossan was shot.
