Police in Northern Ireland have arrested a 32-year-old man in connection with the murder of a takeaway delivery driver in Belfast last week.

Daniel Murray (55) was making a delivery to an address in the west of the city on May 9th when he was shot dead in his car just before 10.20pm.

The PSNI believes the call for the order came from a public telephone box not far from the scene of the crime. The gunman or gunmen is thought to have waited for Mr Murray to arrive at the Lady Street address before killing him.

Detectives arrested a fresh suspect in the case in the greater Belfast area yesterday evening. 

Another man arrested over the murder last Wednesday was released unconditionally. 

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Campbell said: “This was a brutal attack. It has robbed a family of a partner, father and brother and it is important the local community help us find those responsible."
