Det Ch Insp Mark Wrigley, who leads the investigation, said: “While this investigation has made significant progress and one person is awaiting trial for the murder, I am still keen to speak to the two people shown in these images.

“We understand that Grineo had gone to the snooker club where he was then involved in an altercation with others and a number of shots were fired and as result he lost his life, others were also injured. We need the community to support us and help bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone seeing either of the two men should not approach them, but should instead immediately call 999.
