Five men have been arrested in connection with the death of a party-goer who was killed outside a 21st birthday celebration.


Gary Weir, 24, from Eddlewood Court, Glasgow, was stabbed and fatally wounded after attending a function at Shettleston Juniors' football ground in the city on Saturday August 6.

Police have confirmed that five men - three of them aged 20, one aged 21 and one aged 19 - have been arrested in connection with the death.

It is expected that the men will appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court later this week.

Mr Weir was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary following the incident at about 12.35am on Sunday August 7, but died soon after arrival.

Three other men - aged 23, 35 and 26 - were also seriously injured in the incident and were also taken to hospital, but have since been discharged.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
