A fresh appeal has been launched by Police into the murder of Maryhill resident Kenny Reilly. 

The 29-year-old was killed in a shooting in the area on April 16 last year. 

Kenny was sitting in the passenger seat of a silver BMW when a black Ford S Max pulled up and a passenger, wearing a black balaclava, got out of the car and shot him.

He was taken via ambulance to Glasgow Royal Infirmary but died just a few days later.

The investigation took a turn in May after forensic evidence carried out on a burnt-out car found in Craigieburn Gardens, close to the scene of Kenny’s murder in Maryhill Road proved that this was the car used in the shooting.

The car in question had been stolen a month prior to the shooting from the Gifnock area in Glasgow.

Detective Superintendent Kenny Graham, the senior investigating officer on the case also confirmed that police had sightings of the vehicle between the date it was stolen and the date of the shooting.

He said: “We also have sightings of the vehicle being driven between the date it was stolen and the date it was found ablaze immediately after the murder of Kenny Reilly.

“These sightings are currently under investigation by the Kenny Reilly Murder Investigation Team and officers are conducting extensive CCTV investigations into these sightings."

The men, aged between 22 and 38, were arrested at a number of locations in the city.

Detective Superintendent Kenny Graham spoke of the family’s devastation as a result of Kenny’s murder. He added “A team of officers continues to carry out extensive enquiries into the murder of Kenny Reilly and his family are absolutely devastated by his senseless killing.
