The Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Jim Mahon, said: “The apartment was being used as a venue for a party which had been advertised through social media platforms.

“We believe that a large amount of people either attended the party or had their attention drawn to the noise and large presence there. We believe people may have information, photographs or videos of the party and incident. We ask that anyone present come forward to provide us with information about the event. Also for the public to send in any media that may assist.
