Four men arrested in connection with the murder of a father-of-five in County Antrim earlier this month have been released without charge.

Brian McIlhagga was killed by a masked gang outside a house at Riverview Park in Ballymoney on 5 January.

The 42-year-old Ballymena man was beaten and shot in the leg and died from his injuries.

The men, aged 22, 23, 33 and 34, were arrested in Ballymoney on Monday but released unconditionally a day later.

Several people have been arrested as part of the investigation over the past two weeks, but no-one has been charged.
