Police free bar killings suspect

O'Toole's bar
Six men were shot dead in the bar

A man arrested in England for questioning about the murder of six people in a County Down bar 14 years ago has been released without charge.

Officers from the PSNI arrested the 45-year-old in Maidstone on Monday with the assistance of Kent Police.

The killings in O'Toole's Bar in Loughinisland took place as the men, aged 34 to 87, watched television.

The victims were watching a World Cup match when a UVF gang burst in and opened fire.

They were Adrian Rogan, 34, 39-year-old Eamon Byrne, Patsy O'Hare, 35, Dan McCreanor, 59, Barney Green, 87, and Malcolm Jenkinson, 54.
