Two charged with shooting murder

Two people have been charged with the murder of a man in Belfast city centre.

Christopher Mackin, 31, was gunned down in the College Square North area last week.

A 40-year-old man and 35-year-old woman arrested in the wake of the Thursday night shooting have now been charged with the murder. They will appear in court in Belfast.

A 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man detained on Sunday in connection with the killing continue to be questioned by detectives.

Mr Mackin, a father-of-one, who lived near the scene of the attack with his mother, was shot a number of times and died a short time later in hospital.

The victim was known to police in relation to past crimes.
