Man Dies After Disturbance In Glasgow

A 24-year-old man has died in suspicious circumstances after a disturbance outside a football ground in Glasgow's east end.

He was one of four men injured in the incident outside the Shettleston Juniors Football Ground in Shettleston Road at around 12.35am.

Police said all four were taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where the 24-year-old died shortly after admission. His death is being treated as suspicious.

The other three men, aged 23, 25 and 26, were treated for serious injuries but later discharged themselves from hospital.

Detective Inspector Martin Fergus, from the Police Scotland Major Investigation Team (West), said: "A post-mortem examination will take place in due course to establish the exact cause of death.

"However, we are treating the death of this young man as suspicious meantime.

"We are currently viewing CCTV and carrying out door-to-door inquiries in order to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident.

"We know that there had been a 21st birthday party function at the club and I would appeal to anybody who was at the function, or knew of anybody attending the function, to please contact us.

"It is clear that this disturbance took place in the street. Therefore if you saw or heard anything, no matter how trivial you may think it is, it is vital that we speak to you.

"I also urge anyone who was passing by the football ground at around 12.30am this morning and saw anything suspicious to contact police immediately.''

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
