ATTEMPTED MURDER – RANNOCH DRIVE, BEARSDEN, GLASGOW

Police are appealing for information after a firearm was discharged in Bearsden this morning, Wednesday 5 June 2019.
Around 5.30 am police were called after a 38 year-old man was shot at whilst he was leaving a property on Rannoch Drive.

Nobody was injured during the incident but a window of a property was damaged.
The suspect who had the firearm then got back into a silver or grey coloured Skoda, possibly a Fabia, driven by another person and made off south along Rannoch Drive.

Detective Inspector Stuart Dougan, Major Investigation Team, said:
“Thankfully no one has been injured as a result of this shooting but there could have had a very different outcome.

“We believe, from our investigation so far, that the man was the intended target of the shooter.

“However, it doesn’t matter whether intended or not, to use a firearm so recklessly is incredibly dangerous. We will be treating this as attempted murder.

“We know that the Skoda was parked in Rannoch Drive prior to the attack and officers are in the area at the moment looking at CCTV, both private and public, as well as carrying out door to door enquiries.

“Residents in the street would have either been in their beds or just waking up when this took place and we would appeal for anyone who may have seen or heard anything, and has not already spoken to police, to get in touch.”
