Father of two Paul McNally and another local man were shot as they left a branch of Sean Graham's bookmakers at the junction of Brompton Park and Crumlin Road on 5 June 1976.
Both men sustained serious injuries in the gun attack.
Paul, a 26-year-old plumber, died two days later in hospital.He was married and had a four-year-old daughter and a five-month-old son.
Police believe two gunmen opened fire at the bookies in "a random sectarian attack" on a group of men leaving the premises.
Detectives from the PSNI's Serious Crime Branch, assisted by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service, made an arrest in east London on Tuesday morning.
A man was interviewed at a police station in London.
In an update later on Tuesday, a police spokesman said: "A 60-year-old man arrested in London earlier today by detectives from Serious Crime Branch investigating the murder of Paul McNally in 1976 has been released unconditionally."
