Man, 42, in hospital following shooting in quiet Scottish neighbourhood

A 42-year-old man has been hospitalised following a shooting in a quiet Scottish neighbourhood on Sunday evening.

The incident took place around 9.05pm in the outskirts of Glasgow.

It’s understood the victim has been injured and was taken to hospital to receive treatment. Hospital staff describe his condition as “stable”.

Local residents in the neighbourhood later took to Twitter to post images of the scene.

A Police Scotland spokesperson told the Daily Record : “At around 2105 on Sunday 12th March 2017 police received a report of a 42-year-old man injured following a shooting incident in Honeywell Drive, Stepps, located on the north-eastern outskirts of Glasgow.

“Police attended and the injured man has been taken to hospital where he is receiving treatment. Hospital staff describe his condition as stable.

“This appears to be a targeted attack and officers are currently carrying out enquires in the local area to gather more information on the circumstances.”

The Stepps shooting comes just days after florist shop owner Ross Craig was blasted in the leg in broad daylight as he dropped one of his kids off at school in the Shawlands area of Glasgow.

It’s thought the shooter had stalked Craig and identified when he would be at his most vulnerable to an attack.
