Police in the US are investigating the death of a 21-year-old Irish man who was assaulted in New York.
It is reported that Danny McGee from Drumlish in Longford was attacked by a man outside a bar in the Queens area of the city.
He had suffered a head injury and was transported to Elmhurst Hospital Centre where he was pronounced dead.
A police spokesman said preliminary investigations suggested the victim had been “punched in the head by an unknown male in front of that location”.
He said the suspect fled on foot.
The Department of Foreign Affairs says it is providing consular assistance to his family.
