Man arrested in connection with murder

One man has been arrested following the murder of a man in Co Down last month.

Andrew Cully, a father of teenage boys from Greyabbey, was shot up to 10 times as he sat in his parked car in the loyalist West Winds estate in Newtownards on 24 March.

While police have still to come up with a motive for the attack, they did revisit the scene of the crime on Wednesday as part of their investigations.

Police had initially arrested one man but he was later released without charge following questioning "about serious crime in the area".
