DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Major Investigation team probing the brutal murder of a man shot in front of his partner and children four months ago have arrested a man on suspicion of murder.
Stephen Carson, 28, was shot in the head through a bathroom door at Walmer Street, Belfast, on 26 February.
He was having a meal with his partner and nine-year-old son when an armed gang forced their way into the house.
Detectives believe his murder was part of a “criminal feud” involving crime gangs in west Belfast.
The arrested man, who is 35, was detained in Belfast and is being quizzed at the PACE custody suite at Musgrave PSNI station.
On Monday evening the PSNI revealed that a 35-year-old man has been arrested,
Detective Chief Inspector Alan Dickson said: “Detectives investigating the murder of Stephen Carson at Walmer Street in south Belfast on Thursday 25th February have arrested a 35 year old man on suspicion of murder.
