"He then activates and waits at the pedestrian crossing for the 'green man' before walking casually across the road in front of schoolchildren.

"He then shoots Jim and, while fleeing from the scene, walks out in front of cars - holding his hand up to stop them - before jogging back along the Glen Road and into Clonelly Avenue, where he disappears."

A dissident republican is a main element of enquiry.

Police are appealing to anyone with information to contact them.
