A man has been charged with the murder of an Irishman who was shot dead in Australia yesterday.
Police said the man was found with a gunshot wound at a house in the town of Oberon in the Central Tablelands area of New South Wales.
He was discovered at around 8am local time on Thursday morning (9pm last night Irish time) and treated by paramedics; however, he died at the scene.
The man has yet to be formally identified; however, he is believed to have been aged in his 30s and from County Sligo.
A 57-year-old man was arrested at the house and taken to Oberon Police Station.
He has since been charged with murder and is due to appear at Bathurst Local Court this evening (Irish time).
Police said Initial inquiries suggest the two men knew each other.
The scene has been sealed off and is being examined by specialist forensic police.
A firearm has also been seized by investigators.
The Department of Foreign Affairs said it is aware of the case and is providing consular assistance.
