Police are investigating a suspected drive-by shooting at a house in Glasgow.

No-one was injured in the incident, which happened just before 23:45 on Monday on Ladyloan Avenue in Drumchapel.

Officers said occupants of a Volkswagen Passat, which appeared to have crashed at a nearby park and then abandoned, could be behind the shooting.

The area was cordoned off as police carried out their investigations.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said officers had gone to the area after reports of a car having crashed on Ladyloan Avenue at Peel Glen Road.

No-one was in the car when the police arrived.

Det Insp Kevin Gilmour said: "At this time, officers are linking both these incidents and thankfully there have been no reports of anyone injured.

"However, an investigation is under way to establish the circumstances and to trace whoever is involved.

"Officers have been carrying out inquiries in the area and are studying CCTV footage to gather more information on this crime."

He urged anyone with information about the incidents to contact the police.
