Ballyshannon Garda Station
A 40 year old man arrested in Donegal following a weekend hit and run in County Fermanagh has been released without charge pending a file to the DPP.
The 40-year-old who is from south county Donegal, was released shortly after 10 pm last night following questioning about the hit-and-run death of a man in his mid-50s named locally as Pat John McCafferty of Belault, Pettigo.
Mr McCafferty died after he was struck by a car across the border at Leggs, near Belleek, Co. Fermanagh, shortly after 2.50 a.m. on Sunday morning.
Gardai subsequently arrested a man on Sunday evening in the Pettigo area, with a garda source indicating that the arrested man was questioned in relation to a murder investigation.
He was released last night without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
