Four men have been arrested over the fatal shooting of a man at a Chinese takeaway in Greater Manchester.

Halton McCollin, 20, was shot once in the head when masked men burst into the China Garden in Stretford last January. He died several days later.

Four men aged 23, 27, 28 and 32 were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and later released on bail.

Mr McCollin was an amateur footballer who played for Flixton in the North West Counties League.

Police have previously revealed they have found the revolver which was used to kill him.

No-one has been charged in connection with the case.

The four arrested men were released on bail until April.
