Shooting near Bearsden school treated as murder attempt
Officers were called to East Dunbartonshire after a 38-year-old man was targeted.
Police are probing the attempted murder of a man after shots were fired near an East Dunbartonshire primary school.
Officers were called to Rannoch Drive in Bearsden at around 5.30am on Wednesday following reports of a firearm having been discharged.
The 38-year-old victim was shot at as he left a house in the street
Police believe he was the intended target and are treating the shooting as attempted murder.
The shooter then made their escape in a silver or grey-coloured Skoda - possibly a Fabia - which was driven by another person.
No one was injured in the incident.
Families later travelling to nearby Killermont Primary and Nursery were advised that the road had been restricted due to the shooting.
Posting on Twitter, a school spokesperson stated: "School and nursery open as normal today.
"Road access to the school is restricted as the top end of Rannoch Drive is currently closed.
"Lane open as normal. Please allow extra time if you are driving."
Police are now carrying out door-to-door enquiries in the area and are checking CCTV.
Detective inspector Stuart Dougan, of the Major Investigation Team, 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."
