The investigation is on-going and police are offering a Â£50,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.
The offender has been described as white and of slim build and was wearing a hat, possibly fisherman style, a face covering, a green or khaki long-sleeved top and combat style trousers tucked into black, lace-up boots. He was carrying a black gun.
Detective Chief Inspector Howard Millington, the Senior Investigating Officer, said: â€œFour months after Paul Massey was murdered and our detectives are still working hard to catch the person responsible.
â€œWe are keen to speak to a man who was seen at 7pm on Friday 24 July 2015, in Clifton Country Park albeit the other side of the park near to the entrance to Giants Seat Farm around 150 yards before the Giants Seat Garden Centre. He was in what was described as a white Renault Kangoo van and has been described as white, in his late thirties to early forties, about 5ft 10in tall, of average build, with a round face, and was wearing a black hat, black jacket, grey and black camouflage trousers, and was carrying a torch and a gun.
â€œWe will investigate all avenues and the similarity to the description of the offender may be mere coincidence, but I would ask that he gets in touch so we can eliminate him from our enquiries.
â€œOver the last few months there has been understandable concern in the community about organised crime and the recent shooting incidents. I want to assure you that we are focused on tackling the issue of serious and organised crime.
â€œThe key to this murder lies in the community and I believe someone out there knows who did it. Whatever you think of police, do the right thing and talk to us; your information could help to stop further violence in your community.
â€œI want to stress that if you come forward with what you know, we can offer you complete anonymity and I assure you that you will have our full support. Or if you donâ€™t feel you can talk to police but you have information, you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.â€
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police on 0161 856 9775,101, or independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
