Police are treating an early-morning firearms incident in Bearsden as an attempted murder.

The alarm was raised at around 5.30am after a 38-year-old man was shot at whilst leaving a property on Rannoch Drive. 

Cops are now searching for the gunman, who fled the scene in a silver or grey coloured Skoda, possibly a Fabia, which was being driven by another person.

They made off south along Rannoch Drive.

A primary school nearby reported a large police presence in the area, and warned parents of restricted access to the school grounds.

Detective inspector Stuart Dougan 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.”
