A 33-year-old man being questioned in relation to the murder of a Londonderry man has been released without charge, the police have said.

Emmett Shiels, 22, a pizza delivery man from Tyrconnell Street in the Bogside, was shot dead in the Creggan area on Tuesday.

Police are continuing to question a 17-year-old man.

A car which may be linked to the murder has been removed for forensic examination from the Ballyarnet area.

Mr Shiels was driving a pizza delivery van when he was caught up in a confrontation with five or six masked gunmen.

Up to 1,000 people attended a vigil in memory of Mr Shiels in the city on Tuesday night.

On Wednesday, Mr Sheils's family thanked the people of Derry for their support during their ordeal.
