Dundee residents have spoken of their shock after a man was charged with murder following the discovery of a body in a property in Dundee.
Police Scotland have confirmed that a 21-year-old man has been charged after the body of a male was found in Brown Constable Street on Friday.
However, no further details as to the identity of the victim have been released at this stage.
Residents have been shocked by the incident.
Neighbour Stan Catalin, 28, said he had learned about it after returning home from holiday at the weekend.
He added: “It’s really scary to learn that a man has died in the flat and that someone has been arrested in connection with the death.
“The police have been here all weekend and the incident van is still sitting outside.
“It is frightening to think someone has died in suspicious circumstances in the building you live in.
“I really hope police get to the bottom of what has happened.
“I spoke to the man a couple of times when I met him in the lobby but I never really had much to do with him.”
Other neighbours, Sallam Miraha and Aysyh Sultana – who live next door to the flat where the man died –said that they hadn’t really known him.
Sallam added: “He never really spoke to us but we used to see a lot of people coming and going from his flat.
“I don’t think he had lived here for very long and we only saw him occasionally.
“It’s shocking to hear that he has died.
“Police are continuing to stand outside the door and the police incident van is still outside in the street.”
A police spokesman said: ‘‘Police were called to an address in Brown Constable Street at 9.35am following a call from a member of the public regarding the welfare of a man.
‘‘On arrival, officers found a man’s body within a property.”
Detective Chief Inspector David Pinkney of the Major Investigation Team said: “Our investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the man is continuing and there has been police activity in the area for some time.
“I would like to thank the local community for their understanding while we carry out our investigations.
“We believe this has been a contained incident with no wider threat to the local community.
“Additional patrols will be carried out in the area by community officers to provide reassurance and assistance to local residents.
“Should anyone have any information I would ask that they call Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 959 of May 25.
“Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
