The four males – aged 15, 18, 38, and 51 – were arrested in the city on Wednesday morning, May 8, in connection with the killing.

The suspects have been taken to the Serious Crime Suite at Musgrave PSNI Station in Belfast, where they are being questioned by detectives.

Ms. McKee, 29, was shot dead while observing riots in Derry’s Creggan estate area on Thursday, April 18. The New IRA, a dissident paramilitary group opposed to Northern Ireland’s peace process, says its members killed her by accident when firing at police.

The senior officer leading the investigation, Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy, said: “As part of this morning’s operation detectives carried out searches at four houses in the city and arrested four people in connection with the violence which was orchestrated on the streets of Creggan on the evening of Lyra McKee’s murder.

“They are currently in custody, where they are being questioned.

“I want to thank the public for the widespread support we have received to date, including more than 140 people who have provided images, footage and other details via our dedicated Major Incident Public Portal.”

McKee’s death united people and politicians in shock and grief.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and political leaders from all the Northern parties were in attendance in St. Anne’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Belfast for her funeral service on April 24.
