Police said yesterday that three people, two men and a juvenile, arrested on Saturday morning in connection with the incident, had been released without charge. Two people arrested on Saturday afternoon on suspicion of murder, a man and a juvenile, remained in custody yesterday assisting police with their inquiries.
