The PSNI have arrested four people in connection with the murder of journalist Lyra McKee. 

The men aged 15, 18, 38, 51 were arrested this morning. They are currently in custody and are being questioned by detectives.

28-year-old Lyra was shot dead on April 18 during riots in Derry City.

Superintendent Jason Murphy stated: "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."

He also appealed for witnesses to come forward. "I still want to hear from anyone who can tell us anything they know. I would urge anyone who has any information to contact my team of detectives on 101.

"Alternatively, if you would prefer to provide information without giving your details, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111," he added.




Tributes have been paid to 29-year-old journalist Lyra McKee who was killed in Derry last night. Lyra was reporting on riots in the Creggan area of Derry when a gunman shot her.

It is understood that a dissident republican shot the young journalist. The PSNI are appealing for witnesses.

Lyra has been remembered as an inspiring and gifted writer whose future was cruelly stolen from her in what has been described as a ‘senseless’ act.

Lyra was set to release her first book The Lost Boys in 2020.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney paid tribute to the writer: “Sick to my stomach at death of Lyra McKee in Derry. She was an inspiring thinker and journalist. Last night she was killed by a thug terrorizing people in Derry.”

“Heartbreaking news. A senseless act. A family has been torn apart. Those who brought guns onto our streets in the 70s, 80s & 90s were wrong. It is equally wrong in 2019. No one wants to go back. My thoughts are also with the brave officers who stood in defence of their community,” said Arlene Foster.

Close friend of Lyra McKee, Matthew Hughes expressed his devastation at the loss of his dear friend.

“She was one of my closest friends. She was my mentor. She was a groomswoman at my wedding. I can't imagine life without her, and yet now I must. I'm devastated.”

Sinéad Gleeson added: “It’s utterly senseless and such a waste. Lyra, at 29, was a blazing comet; fearless and full of integrity (and mischief, it has to be said). Heartbroken for her family and friends, and for all the challenging and brilliant work we will never get to see. Thank you @LyraMcKee.”

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Lyra McKee. She will forever be remembered for her powerful words and determined heart.
