"We also appealed to a person who phoned police in the early hours of last Friday morning with information about the murder to call back. That person has yet to do so. I would appeal to them to contact us.

"Our enquiries in the local community have established that Conor was seen in the area of Rosapenna Street and Oldpark Road at 6pm last Thursday evening. We believe he was shot in his home at Glenpark Street at 6.15pm.
