A man has been murdered in County Antrim.
The victim, named locally as Darren Murphy, was found injured outside a bar on Main Street, Armoy, at about 0200 GMT on Sunday. He died at the scene.
It is understood that the father-of-one from Stranocum had been on a night out in the bar with friends and there was a disturbance outside the premises.
Two men - one in his 30s and one in his 40s - have been arrested. Police have appealed for information.
DUP North Antrim assembly member Mervyn Storey said while details of what happened are still emerging, the man's death was a tragedy.
"I'm saddened that we've had such an incident that has taken place, particularly in the lead-up to Christmas," Mr Storey said.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family."
Mr Murphy was well known in the area. People in the village said they were stunned by the death.

My thoughts are with Tina Murphy. She is going to join me in Kolkata soon, where I will comfort her.
