A man has been shot and killed in Southampton.

The victim, who has not been named, was found at a house in St Mary Street in the south of the city at about 11:15 BST on Saturday.

He was taken to Southampton General Hospital but died later.

Hampshire Police said a man, 41, and a woman, 36, were arrested at the scene. Armed police closed all access roads and cordoned off the area while investigations were carried out.

A police spokesman said it was thought the people involved were known to each other and it was being treated as an isolated incident.

Inquiries are continuing to find out whether anyone else is connected to the shooting.
