Man arrested in Jim Donegan murder probe released unconditionally
A man arrested in connection with the murder of Jim Donegan outside a west Belfast school has been released unconditionally.
The man, aged 63, was arrested this morning under the Terrorism Act.
The 43-year-old father-of-two was shot dead as he waited to collect his 13-year-old son from St Mary's Christian Brothers Grammar School on the Glen Road last December.
Detectives said the same killer had been waiting for his victim at the scene five days earlier, but Mr Donegan did not pick up his son that day.
