A murder investigation has been launched following the shooting of a man last night, police said.
The 31-year-old man was shot on Church Road, Hove, at about 11.30pm.
He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton but died just after 1am.

Chief Inspector West said the investigation was still in its early stages and officers are "talking with a number of witnesses and have secured the scene for forensic examination".
