Three people who were arrested by detectives investigating the murder of a man in north Belfast on Saturday have been released without charge.

Robbie Lawlor, 36, who was from Dublin, was shot outside a house in Etna Drive in Ardoyne.

It is believed Mr Lawlor was a leading figure in a feuding criminal gang.

Two men aged 30 and 33 and a 17-year-old boy who were being questioned about his murder have been released unconditionally.

On Monday, a 27-year-old man was also released unconditionally.

On Sunday, properties in west Belfast and Crumlin were searched by police, but officers said they had not yet recovered the murder weapon.
