Man in hospital after being shot in 'targeted attack'
The 42-year-old victim is in a stable condition after the incident in Stepps on Sunday.
A man shot in an attempted murder was targeted as he reversed his car out of his driveway, police said.
The 42-year-old was pulling out on to Honeywell Drive in Stepps, North Lanarkshire, when he was shot in his arm.
Police said the shot came from a white Audi estate which pulled up beside the target's Skoda.
A number of shots, possibly four or five, were heard in the area.
After the shooting, which happened at around 9.05pm on Sunday, the Audi made off at speed down Honeywell Drive and on to Dewar Road.
A burnt-out Audi matching the description of the vehicle was later recovered at Hogarth Park in Haghill and will undergo forensic examination.
The injured man contacted emergency services and was taken by ambulance to hospital where he is in stable condition awaiting surgery.
Police described the incident as a targeted attack, but said it is too early to say whether it is linked to other recent incidents.
Detective superintendent Kenny Graham said: "We are in the process of establishing the motive for this incident and we are looking at a number of lines of inquiry. We do believe the victim was the intended target.
"Understandably, local residents will be concerned by this event, however, be assured, a team of experienced detectives is dedicated to this inquiry to establish the full circumstances of the crime and trace whoever is responsible."
Detectives appealed for information, particularly from anyone with information on the Audi.
Forensic officers have been searching the scene and surrounding areas, but have found no trace of ammunition or a weapon.
