A man has been murdered in a violent attack in his own home.

Andrew Salina, 51, died at the scene of the incident in Roystonhill, Glasgow, at around 3.30am on Monday.

Police Scotland have launched a murder investigation, with forensic teams combing the scene and officers carrying out door-to-door inquiries.

Detectives are particularly keen to trace three men seen driving away from the area in a small, light-coloured car around the time of the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Livingstone said: ''Following a violent incident, Andrew Salina has died having been seriously injured within his home address in Roystonhill.

''He sustained serious injuries, which are consistent with a weapon being used, and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

''Police and emergency services responded to reports of a disturbance within the property, and the local community are understandably shocked that such a violent incident has occurred.

''Specialist forensic staff have been deployed to the scene, and detectives and officers have been carrying out door-to-door inquiries to determine who is responsible.

''I am asking for the assistance of the local community to come forward with any information you may have. It is possible you witnessed or heard a disturbance in Roystonhill at the junction with Millburn Street at around 3.30am.

''We also understand that three men were seen entering the area in a small, light-coloured car and were seen leaving the area in the same vehicle following the alleged incident.

''Please do not hesitate to contact us with any information you have. You may think the information you have is insignificant, but as part of our broader investigation, your information could greatly assist our inquiry.''

Extra patrols are to be carried out in the area.

Mr Livingstone added: ''I want to reassure the local community that we are doing everything we can to find out what took place and determine who is responsible for the death of Andrew Salina.''
