DETECTIVES IN THE North have arrested a man in his 40s on suspicion of the murder of Robbie Lawlor.

Lawlor was shot dead in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast on 4 April 2020.

It’s understood his killing was related to the ongoing Drogheda feud, which involves criminal enterprises on both sides of the border.

Lawlor was also considered a suspect in the murder earlier this year of teenager Keane Mulready-Woods.

The PSNI said that a 45-year-old man had been arrested today on suspicion of murder.

He has been taken to Musgrave Police Station for questioning.
