A man has died and a woman has been arrested following an incident inside a home in Galashiels.
Emergency services were called to an incident at a property on Chris Paterson Place in the town, at around 6pm on Friday, to reports of an injured man.
The 40-year-old was taken to Borders General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Police said that a 38-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the incident and enquiries are ongoing.
Officers reportedly carried out door-to-door enquiries at the edge of the town development, and were also standing guard at the back door of a corner property in the cul-de-sac.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “The incident occurred within a dwelling and officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation.
“There was no risk to the wider community.”
