Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Dalzell said investigators would like to speak to people who were at the Snowdon Ave property last night.

"There were a number of young people at a gathering at the address, and as part of our inquiries we would like to speak to anyone who was there who has not yet spoken to us," he said

Anyone who was at the property last night has been asked to contact police on 105.
