Detectives have launched a murder investigation following the death of a 36 year old man in Gilford.

The victim sustained stab wounds in the Hill Street area during the early hours of this morning and subsequently died from his injuries.

Three people have been arrested and are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

The PSNI are asking for witnesses or anyone with information can contact detectives by calling 101, quoting reference 262 21/05/22.

They added that there was no further information available at this stage.

Upper Bann MP, Carla Lockhart, said her thoughts and prayers are with the family of the deceased.

"A death of a loved one is never easy but in such circumstances it is even more difficult to comprehend," she said.

"I know the entire Gilford community will be in shock. It is important for everyone to give time and space to the PSNI to conduct their investigations. Our thanks must also go to the emergency services who attended to the scene.

"If anyone has any further information please come forward and report it to the Police."
