Police received a report from the Ambulance Service just after 9pm last night (June 28) that they were attending to a seriously injured male who they had located in the area of Parkmount Street/Seaview Close.

The man, aged 30, was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to hospital where he unfortunately died from his injuries.

“I am appealing for anyone it was the area of Parkmount Street or Seaview Close between 8pm and 9.30pm last night and who witnessed anything to contact detectives at Musgrave Police Station on 101 quoting reference 1487 of 28/06/18.
