A 32-year-old woman is due in court on Friday charged in connection with the murder of a man in Kilkeel, County Down.

Dmytro Grysunov, 29, was shot dead at Rooney Park during a clash between two groups of foreign nationals.

The woman will appear at Newry Magistrates' Court charged with assisting an offender.

She also faces charges of perverting the course of justice and withholding information.

Police have been given a further 36 hours to question a 28-year-old man arrested over the murder. He was arrested on Tuesday evening.

Three men aged 31, 36 and 26 have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Police want to question two other men, including Devidas Paliutis who was freed in error from Maghaberry Prison last autumn and has been on the run since.

It is believed a dispute between the two groups started when a house was attacked at Haywood Way at 2100 BST on Saturday.

The trouble then moved to Rooney Park, where at least two shots were fired in the street.

The attackers then fled the scene on foot.
