A man has been the victim of a brutal murder that occurred near Princes Quay on Monday Morning.

Michael Samwell, 35, was believed to have been run over by his own black Audi S3 at about 3AM. The car was being driven by two men that have yet to be identified.

The victim’s partner Mark Barron found Michael in critical condition after the incident. He was taken to hospital but died soon after as a result of his injuries.
