Police have arrested a 36-year-old man in connection with the murder of Robbie Lawlor in north Belfast.

Mr Lawlor, 36, was shot outside a house in Etna Drive in Ardoyne on Saturday.

He had been a suspect in the abduction and murder of Drogheda teenager Keane Mulready-Woods in January.

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

The suspect was detained on Tuesday night on suspicion of murder.

The PSNI believes a single gunman was involved in the Ardoyne attack.

Three other men and a teenager who were arrested have since been released.
