Police today named a 21-year-old man gunned down in a Belfast street as David Greer, of Robena Court.

He was found lying on a pavement after being shot in the chest in Mountcollyer Street at around 9.45pm last night.

Police had been called to the area after reports of a disturbance in nearby Mileriver Street.

The shooting occurred near the Limestone Road, which divides loyalist and nationalist areas of the city, but security sources said the killing did not appear to be sectarian.

RUC Inspector Bob Torrens said "it is much, much too early to say what the motive for this murder would be.

"We are very, very keen to hear from people in the area here who heard or saw anything suspicious and we would ask them to get in contact with police at York Road immediately."
