The death of a teenager who had been involved in a disturbance with security staff outside a nightclub is being treated as suspicious.

Police said the 18-year-old was refused entry to Fury Murry's in Shuttle Street, Paisley, at 0045 GMT on Sunday.

He then became involved in an "altercation" with security staff. He died shortly afterwards.

A police spokesman said a post-mortem examination was due to take place. A report has been sent to the fiscal.

Floral tributes and Rangers tops have been left outside the club at the scene where the teenager died.

Appealing for witnesses, Det Insp Lesley McDowall said: "We know that the young man left his family home around 9 o'clock last night saying that he was heading out for the night, but so far, we do not know where he was between 9pm and when he got to the club at quarter to one in the morning.

"I am very keen to find out who he was with and what he was doing between those times.

"I would also like to speak to anyone who was in Shuttle Street and who saw the disturbance, or who has any information that will help us with our enquiries."
