Conor McKee murder update, North Belfast

Police today disclosed that 31 year old north Belfast murder victim Conor McKee had been shot a number of times.

Mr McKee was found dead at his Glenpark Street home last Thursday night by his mother.

The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway, said the investigation was making progress: “We have had a very positive response from Conor’s friends who have come forward with information after our appeal last week. I want to thank them for their co-operation. 
“We also appealed to a person who phoned police in the early hours of last Friday morning with information about the murder to call back. That person has yet to do so. I would appeal to them to contact us.

“Our enquiries in the local community have established that Conor was seen in the area of Rosapenna Street and Oldpark Road at 6pm last Thursday evening. We believe he was shot in his home at Glenpark Street at 6.15pm.

“I am appealing to anyone who saw Conor walking from the Oldpark area back to Glenpark Street between 6pm and 6.15pm, either on his own or with someone, to contact us.

“Anyone with information can contact detectives at Musgrave police station on the non-emergency 101 number or provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
