The death of a 30-year-old man in Paisley is being treated as murder.

The man was discovered by police attending a disturbance in Argyle Street at about 15:35 on Saturday.

Another man, aged 37, was also found with serious injuries and is in a "serious but stable" condition in hospital.

Police have appealed for witnesses and pointed out that the street is residential and a number of people would have been in the area.

Det Insp Grant MacLeod, who is leading the investigation, said: "The area in which this took place is very residential, therefore I would like to speak to anyone who lives nearby who may have witnessed the disturbance to come forward.

"A man has lost his life following a violent assault and it is a priority that we identify who is responsible.

"The time of the attack was during the afternoon on a weekend, therefore there would have been more people than usual in the area."
