Police investigating the murder of Trainspotting 2 actor Bradley Welsh has arrested a second man.
The Reformed gangster was hit at the black point by a hit man disguised as a jogger at his home in Edinburgh last Wednesday night.
Underworld sources claimed that the battle had been brought to the head of the 48-year-old as a warning to one of his employees.

Scotland police confirmed the arrest this afternoon and said the suspect had been released pending further investigation.
The armed forces said it could not reveal the age of the suspect for & # 39; operational reasons & # 39 ;.
It is the second arrest in two days. On Tuesday morning, a man was detained and released pending further investigation.

Welsh played together with Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle in T2 Trainspotting, with gangland figure Mr Doyle.
Earlier this week, underworld sources demonstrated that the Welsh murder was a warning shot at Mark Richardson, 32, currently serving eight years for his role in a £ 200 million organized gang that smuggled weapons and drugs to Scotland.
Sources said a £ 50,000 reward was imposed by a rival gang for anyone who can take out the kingpin drug.
The source told The Daily Record: & The figures doing the rounds are £ 10k for Welsh and £ 50k for anyone who eliminates Richardson. Murder is cheap. Some people would do it for less money. & # 39;
Mr. Welsh was engaged to get married the moment he was killed and has a young daughter, Eva Tiger.
The gym owner, who has been a charity worker in recent years, was warned by the police weeks ago that his life was in danger.

His murderer is said to be a & # 39; gun type & # 39; pulled under his clothes and shot at the father-of-one.
The police described the assassin between 20 and 30 years old, between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall, with a slim build and tanned skin.
The former gangster became the star of Trainspotting 2 and spoke of his regret when he turned to a criminal life at the age of 13, in an interview broadcast two months before his death.
Welsley admitted that before his 18th birthday he was involved with & # 39; protection rackets, firearms and extortion & # 39; and added: & # 39; I have done some terrible, terrible things. & # 39;
He told the interviewer's Anything Goes show: & # 39; I was a young boy from the ghetto's and we didn't have much.
& # 39; Predatiousness [sic] was something that was bred in me.
Because they had things, and we never. What that does when you are a small child, you go off course – no father figure there, my brother was actually my father. & # 39;
He explained that as a young boy with a & # 39; sharp mind & # 39; not only others in lawlessness followed, but took a leading role from an early age.

In the interview, which was broadcast early February, he admitted: & I started on crime. Organizing young groups.
& # 39; And I'm not proud to say it, but I burden people when I was very young, like thirteen.
& # 39; Totally wrong. I'm ashamed of that, but the part of who I was. & # 39;
He said that after completing the organization of rake and grab missiles, his life as a football match led him to the burgeoning club scene in Edinburgh, where he was heavily involved in serious organized crime as a teenager.
He said: & # 39; At 17, 18, I was involved in clubs and protection rackets and firearms.
& # 39; And extortion, and so on? I'm not proud of that, of course not. But at that time it was exactly what it was and again it boils against the sensitive [sic] nature. & # 39;
