A man in his 60s has been shot dead in Co. Mayo.

It happened at Aghamore near Ballyhaunis just before midnight last night, when a man in his 80s heard noises outside his house.

He fired a number of shots to warn off any potential intruders.

A neighbour - a man in his 60s - was hit, and died at the scene.

The scene itself is currently preserved for technical examination, and an incident room has been set up at Claremorris Garda Station.

Gardaí arrested a man in his 80s in connection with the shooting.

He's being held at Castlebar Garda Station where he can be detained for up to 24 hours.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information to contact them at any Garda Station or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
