Mr Cummings was shot in Antrim in July
Police investigating the murder of the Antrim teenager Ciaran Cummings in July have arrested three people.

Mr Cummings, 19, was shot dead at the Greystone roundabout in Antrim on 4 July.

The Catholic man was killed as he waited for a lift to work.

Searches were carried out in the Shore Road in Belfast, Antrim and Ballymena on Thursday.

Officers seized a motorcycle and other items.

Following his killing, police said their main line of inquiry was that he was shot by loyalist paramilitaries.

The so-called Red Hand Defenders, which has been used as a cover name by other loyalist groups including the UFF and LVF, said it carried out the murder.
