Man held over loyalist gun attack


Now a second is being held also

The victim was shot in Newtownabbey

A man has been arrested by detectives investigating the attempted murder of leading loyalist Mark Haddock, police have said.

The 36-year-old, who remains seriously ill, was shot six times in a gun attack in County Antrim on Tuesday.

Mr Haddock was shot at Mossley Orange Hall on the Doagh Road in Newtownabbey after he got out of his car.

He is on bail on a charge of attempting to murder doorman Trevor Gowdy at a social club in Monkstown.

He was named in that court case as a leading member of the Ulster Volunteer Force. Judgement in the trial has been reserved.
