Police have been carrying out forensic inquiries at a property in which a man was found dead.
Emergency services were called to a flat on Brown Constable Street just after 9.30am yesterday.
Police later confirmed that the incident is being treated as “unexplained”, and officers are continuing with their inquiries.
A cordon was put in place at the flat while an investigation got under way.
Dean McKinney, 26, who moved to the area just after Christmas, said his girlfriend told him there was a police presence in the street.
He said: “We’ve just seen the police going back and forward all day, in and out of the block.
“I don’t know anyone who lives in that close but I’m sorry to hear someone has lost their life.”
Officers were seen entering the block with evidence bags and camera equipment just after 2pm. A cat was seen being removed from the property in a carrier.
One resident, who lives in the block of flats where the incident took place, said police officers had been at the door to quiz him about what happened.
He said: “The police came to my door earlier today but they wouldn’t tell me anything in relation to the incident.
“They asked me if I’d heard anything over the past couple of days but wouldn’t elaborate any further than that.”
It is understood police are guarding the door of the property in which the man died.
Another tenant leaving the block confirmed police had approached him but said officers didn’t divulge any information as to what had happened.
A spokesman from the Scottish Ambulance Service confirmed a crew had been in attendance.
He said: “We received a call from Police Scotland to attend an incident in Brown Constable Street at 9.44am.
“We sent one ambulance and treated a male at the incident. We did not convey any patients to hospital.”
A police spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland attended at Brown Constable Street at 9.35am yesterday following the sudden death of a man.
“The death is being treated as unexplained and inquiries are continuing.”
