Police detain two men in relation with Donegal mans murder in Glasgow

Two men have been detained for questioning by police in connection with the death of a Donegal man outside his home in Glasgow.

57-year-old William McKeeney, was attacked in Melville Street, in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow, at around 12.40am on Sunday as he walked home from a night out.

Strathclyde Police said that Mr McKeeney was subjected to a "sustained and violent" assault.

He was taken by ambulance to the Victoria Infirmary where he died from his injuries.

Earlier this week police said Mr McKeeney's partner has been left "completely traumatised" after she witnessed the attack from a window of their ground floor flat.

Officers have detained two men for questioning in connection with the death. No further details were released.

Mr McKeeney, who was originally from Malin Head, was "extremely popular" and "well known" in the local community.

The labourer had been living in Glasgow for the past five years.
