Police release CCTV footage of suspects in journalist Lyra McKee murder case (VIDEO)

New surveillance camera footage showing several suspects in the murder of journalist Lyra McKee has been released by Northern Ireland police as detectives made a fresh appeal for information from the public.

The footage shows three men carrying a crate of petrol bombs, and police believe the smallest and stockiest of the three was the gunman.

McKee was shot dead as she was covering violent confrontations between police and rioters in Creggan, Derry on the night of April 18. The New IRA subsequently claimed responsibility for the killing and apologized.

The Crimestoppers charity has posted an €11,500 ($12,800) reward for information leading to the arrest of McKee's killer.

“I want to find the people who murdered Lyra... I think people within the community know who they are. I’m asking them to come forward and help us,” Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy said in a statement.

Murphy claimed that some 140 members of the public have so far volunteered images, footage and other details relating to their investigation.
