Constable Stephen Carroll, 48, was shot dead in his patrol car

Two men and a woman are still being questioned by police over the murder of Constable Stephen Carroll.

The police officer was shot dead as he answered a distress call in Craigavon, County Armagh, on 9 March last year.

Police arrested a 40-year-old man in Lurgan and a 36-year-old man and 37-year-old woman in Craigavon on Tuesday morning.

A teenager and a 38-year-old man have previously been remanded in custody charged with the murder.

The dissident republican group the Continuity IRA said it killed Constable Carroll, who was 48 and a married man from Banbridge.

He was murdered two days after the Real IRA shot dead two soldiers outside Massereene Barracks in Antrim.
