McGuigan murder: Man appears in court of firearms charge
A 53-year-old man has appeared in court today over a firearms offence as a result of searches carried out by police investigating the murder of Kevin McGuigan.
Patrick Fitzpatrick appeared at Lisburn Magistrate's Court charged with carrying a Glock pistol with intent to endanger life.
Bail was refused after a police officer told the judge that Mr Fitzpatrick remained a suspect in the Kevin McGuigan murder.
Fitzpatrick is from the Lagmore area of Belfast.
It is understood he was the victim of a gun attack in the early 2000's outside a shopping centre in the Annadale are of Belfast, which resulted in the loss of one of his kidneys.
