A 60-year-old man arrested in London as part of a renewed investigation into a murder in north Belfast in 1976 has been released unconditionally.
Paul McNally, 26, was fatally wounded and another man seriously injured in a sectarian gun attack outside a bookmaker's shop on the Crumlin Road.
Two gunmen fired on a group of men before escaping in a hijacked car. Mr McNally died two days later.
The 60-year-old had been arrested by PSNI officers on Tuesday morning.
Mr McNally, 26, a plumber, was married with a four-year-old daughter and a five-month-old son.
The investigation was re-opened after police received fresh information.
In February, a 55-year-old man was arrested and later released pending a report being sent to the Public Prosecution Service.
