Murder Probe After Man Dies
A murder inquiry has been launched after a man died less than three days after being attacked.
Jason Bryden, also known as Jason Dunlop, was attacked at around 11.10pm on Saturday by two men at a property in Kilmarnock's Hareshaw Gardens.
The 38-year-old was taken to Crosshouse Hospital for treatment but died from his injuries in the early hours of this morning.
Police Scotland said the death of Mr Dunlop, of Hareshaw Gardens, is being treated as murder.
Chief Inspector Linda Jones, area commander for Kilmarnock, said: "I can understand that the public may have concerns following this murder. I would like to reassure those in the community that uniformed officers will maintain an enhanced police presence across Onthank over the next few days.
"This is to enable people in the local community to speak to officers about any concerns that they may have, and also to provide any information to police."
A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
Detective Inspector David Moran, of the major investigations team in the west of Scotland, appealed for witnesses.
He said: "Extensive police inquiries have been ongoing in the area where the incident took place, and officers are continuing to study CCTV footage and conduct door-to-door inquiries in an effort to gather more information on the men who are responsible for his death.
"At this time I would urge anyone who was in the area of Hareshaw Gardens around the time of the incident on Sunday night who either witnessed this attack take place, or who has any information that may assist our investigation, to contact police as soon as possible.
"You might not think that the information you have is much, but as part of our broader investigation your information could be critical in tracing those responsible."
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
Police are investigating the attack.
Opposition parties are criticising the figures.
The tragedy happened near the village of Benderloch outside Oban on Sunday.
