A man arrested on suspicion of murdering a 16-year-old who was shot in a Manchester betting shop has been released on bail.

Louis Brathwaite was gunned down in William Hill bookmakers on Mauldeth Road West in Withington on 29 January last year. He died 12 days later.

An 18-year-old man who was arrested in Longsight on Wednesday has been released on bail until 24 February.

He was arrested after Louis' mother made an appeal for information.

Sophia Zollner, 40, called for help on the first anniversary of her son's death.

A post-mortem examination showed Louis died from a gunshot to the abdomen.

A 20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his killers.
