Brian Sinclair was set to seek High Court bail on Thursday on a charge with a suspected link to the ongoing paramilitary feud.

But his lawyer told a judge he had decided to put the application on hold following the shooting of George Gilmore.

The 50-year-old, of O'Rorkes Row in Carrickfergus, is one of three men charged with the attempted murder of a doorman allegedly beaten with a fire extinguisher at the Royal Oak bar last Saturday night.

Gilmore, 44, was in the public gallery when the trio made their first appearance at Belfast Magistrates' Court on Monday, sources have confirmed.

Just over an hour later the leading loyalist was shot in a car as he returned to the Co Antrim town. He died the next day.

Sinclair, his 36-year-old brother Ian, and Glen McCullough, 52, had allegedly attacked the doorman after being refused entry to the bar.

The victim remains in hospital with serious injuries, including a blood clot to the brain and several facial fractures.
