Police have named two men who died following a disturbance in Inverness.
Emergency services were called to a property in the Balloan Road area of the Highland capital at around 10pm on Thursday.
Two men, aged 28 and 35, were pronounced dead at the scene. Today police formally identified them as Dwayne MacLeay and Gary MacKay.
Both families have paid tribute to the men.
Mr MacLeay’s family said he “was a kind, gentle caring person who would help anybody”.
They added: “He lived to play his guitar and sing. The family request privacy at this time.”
Mr MacKay’s family said they were “shocked by the events” and also asked their privacy “is respected at this difficult time”.
They added: “Gary was a dearly beloved son of Gordon and Linda, a brother of Darren and Alan, uncle and a friend to many. Gary was known by the nickname ‘Chunk’ by many and he will be sorely missed by all. Gary was a happy and friendly person, his passion was to watch Inverness Caley Thistle, his team who he followed for many years.”
A 23-year-old man has been charged in connection with the two deaths and injuries caused to a 27-year-old female. He is expected to appear at Inverness Sheriff Court on Monday.
