Police appeal for information about car involved in shooting

Published 19 February 2019

Police Scotland is appealing for information about a red Audi which is believed to have been used in the attack of a 29 year-old man in Glasgow on Saturday 16 February 2019.


Around 11.15 am police were called after gunshots were heard in the area of Dykemuir Street.


A short time later, police were notified that a 29 year old man had attended hospital with injuries caused by a firearm.


He remains in hospital and medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.


Officers carrying out CCTV enquiries have confirmed that the registration of a red Audi S4 TFSI Quattro believed to be involved is MJ14 ZFM.


A burned out vehicle was recovered in the car park of Muirshiel Country Park Visitor Centre, Calderside Road, Lochwinnoch the day after the attack and officers have confirmed this is the same vehicle.


Detective Inspector Jim Bradley, London Road Police Office, said:


"We are now carrying out forensic enquiries on the burned out vehicle we have recovered, however we are appealing for information regarding its movements between Dykemuir Street and Muirshiel Country Park.


“The car would have been set on fire between 4 pm on Saturday and 11.30 am on Sunday, it is a distinctive car with chrome wing mirrors and chrome surround on the windows. Do you remember seeing anything out of the ordinary in or near the visitor centre car park?


“We would also like to find out its movements between Glasgow and the Lochwinnoch area and would ask everyone to think back – did you see this car? You may have dash-cam footage that can help us – particularly in Craigenbae Street, Dykemuir Street, Wallacewell Road or in the Muirshiel Country Park.


“You may have information that could be the key to finding out who was responsible for this attack, no matter how insignificant it may have seemed at the time.”


Anyone with information is asked to contact Greater Glasgow CID via 101 quoting incident number 1630 of Saturday 16 February 2019. Alternatively you can call CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
