The manhunt for murder suspect Kieran McLaughlin is over after he was arrested this morning after re-entering Derry from Donegal.
The 58-year-old was arrested just after 3.00am this morning hiding behind a car in Fern Park in the Galliagh area.
He had been spotted earlier in Donegal by Gardai and tracked by the PSNI when he crossed the border. No shots were fired.
After stealing another car McLaughlin was traced to Fern Park where he was arrested by specially trained PSNI firearms officers.
He was taken to the PSNI’s serious crime suite in Antrim for questioning.
The area around where McLaughlin was arrested remains sealed off by the PSNI who have confirmed a firearm has been recovered. They are currently carrying out a search for a possible second gun.
