A murder inquiry has been launched after the death of a man who was injured in a stabbing in Co Antrim, the PSNI said.

The man (21) sustained stab wounds during an incident at a house in the Cairn Walk area of Crumlin in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a call at 2.50am along with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service.

The man was taken to hospital by ambulance but he died on Sunday morning as a result of his injuries. Two other men and woman were also taken to hospital.

Four men, aged 19, 24, 25 and 29, remain in custody in connection with the incident.
