The 50-year-old suspect was arrested on Friday morning and detained under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 at Buncrana Garda Station.
Andrew Allen was shot dead on 9 February at Links View Park in the Co Donegal town.
The 24-year-old, who was from the Top of the Hill in the Waterside area of Londonderry, was one of a number of people intimidated out of the city by dissident republican group Republican Action Against Drugs.
He was gunned down through the window of his home in Co Donegal last month.
The 24-year-old father of two is one of many people who have been forced to leave the city following threats from the armed gang.
His partner, who also in the house in Links View Park at the time, escaped injury. The couple had been living in there for up to six months.
At the time of the murder Gardaí said they were searching for a gang of up to three men in relation to the fatal shooting.
