A man has appeared in court charged with murdering Kevin "Gerbil" Carroll in Glasgow.

Ross Monaghan is accused of repeatedly shooting and killing Mr Carroll in the Asda car park in Saughs Road, in the city's Robroyston area, on 13 January.

The 28-year-old is also charged with possessing a Ruger .357 Magnum gun and 9mm self-loading pistol.

He made no plea or declaration at Glasgow Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.

Another man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also faces the same charges but has not yet been arrested.

Mr Carroll, 29, allegedly had links to organised crime in Glasgow and had survived two previous attempts on his life before being killed.

He was shot several times while sitting in the back of a black Audi car.

Guns used in the shooting were found by a member of the public behind Coatbridge library in North Lanarkshire, almost a fortnight later.
