Police Re-Appeal After Stepps Shooting

Police Scotland

Detectives have issued an appeal to motorists as they investigate the attempted murder of a man shot in his own driveway.

They are seeking information and dashcam footage from drivers travelling on the M80 at the time of the incident at 9.05pm on Sunday in Stepps, North Lanarkshire.

The 42-year-old was shot while he sat in his car in Honeywell Drive, Cardowan, Stepps.

He suffered an injury to his right forearm and was treated in hospital.

Police say the person or people responsible were in a white Audi estate car.

A white car was later found burnt-out in Hogarth Park in the Haghill area and inquiries are continuing to establish whether it is linked to the incident.

Officers are also trying to establish how many occupants were in the Audi, which sped off down Honeywell Drive and into Dewar Road. It then drove on to the M80 towards Glasgow before ending up in Hogarth Park.

Several people were seen on Dewar Road at the time and officers have appealed to them to get in touch.

Detective Superintendent Kenny Graham said: ``We are following up a number of lines of inquiry. However, we know several people were walking in Dewar Road and in the surrounding areas around the time of the incident.

``I would urge these people to contact us as I'm sure they have information which could assist our ongoing investigation.

``In terms of the M80, I am appealing to motorists who were on that road on Sunday night, in particular anyone with any dashcam footage is asked to pass it on to police.

``It could offer us vital footage on the occupants of the car which could lead us to tracing whoever is responsible for this crime.''
