A 51-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a man at a centre for armed forces veterans.

North Yorkshire Police were called to The Beacon in Marne Road, Catterick Garrison, at around 11.30pm on Friday following the discovery of a 34-year-old with fatal injuries.

It was believed he had been stabbed.

A North Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "Police are investigating the full circumstances surrounding the death and officers continue to work at the scene.

"The arrested man remains in police custody whilst inquiries continue.

"We are not in a position to identify the man who died."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.

The witness, identified as Chelloug, said: "There was a police van and the guy came in an Audi A80, an old grey Audi."He parked just behind the van and he got out with a Kalashnikov and I heard six gunshots."I thought they were firecrackers, because we all looked around the road and there was no one."In fact, he was hidden behind the van and shooting at the police."I think he hit a policeman. As soon as the policeman opened the door of the van, he fell, I think.
