On Friday, police re-opened the investigation into the death of west Belfast man Joseph Reynolds.
He was travelling to work as a subcontractor painter at Shorts aircraft factory on 12 October, 1993 when his van was ambushed by UVF gunmen.
The red Nissan van had stopped at a pedestrian crossing on Sydenham Road at 8.25am to allow two men to cross.
The two men, who were wearing blue boilersuits and flat caps, walked across the road at Fraser Street but when they drew level with the van they opened fire with a handgun and a rifle.
At the same time, another man in a stolen light blue Astra car, which had pulled up behind the van, also opened fire.
Mr Reynolds was pronounced dead after workmates managed to get the van to the Shorts factory, while three others were injured.
A 50-year-old man was detained on Tuesday and taken to Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning. He was released without charge later that night.
