Two women arrested in murder probe

Two women have been arrested by police investigating the murder of a 36-year-old man in Co Down.

The shooting happened in the Rooney Park area, Kilkeel, Co Down, on Saturday night. The women suspects are aged 32 and 39.

The victim was wounded in the chest during a row between two groups of foreign nationals.

A man aged 26 is still being questioned. Two other men, aged 31, and 36, have been released on police bail.

It is believed a dispute between the two groups started when a house was attacked at Haywood Way on Saturday.

The trouble then moved to Rooney Park, where at least two shots were fired in the street. The attackers then fled the scene on foot.
