A 38-year-old man has been arrested by police investigating the murder of delivery driver Daniel Murray, 55, in West Belfast.

Mr Murray was lured to his death on Monday night as he delivered takeaway food to an address in the area.

The 55-year-old had previously survived two attempts on his life.

It is not known whether the murder was drugs related, but police said they were not ruling a drugs link out.

He was shot in the head when he went to deliver the food in a black Ford Focus.

The police understand the food order was placed at the junction of the Antrim Road and the Cliftonville Road.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Campbell said: "The 38-year-old man was arrested in the West Belfast area on the evening of Wednesday May 11. He is currently in custody at Musgrave Police Station."
