Shots fired at house in 'targeted attack'

Shooting scene

Detectives have launched an investigation after shots were fired at a house in the east end of Glasgow.

Police Scotland said they believed the shooting in Millroad Drive, Calton, was a targeted attack.

However, detectives said they did not know the reason and were working to establish a motive.

No-one was injured in the incident, which took place at about 22:20 on Monday. A broken window can be seen at one of the houses in the street.

Police said a white car, possibly a Volkswagen, had pulled up outside the house before the shots were fired.

"No-one was injured in the incident. However, family members have been left badly shaken by the incident," said a spokesman.

"Officers have been carrying out door-to-door inquiries and have CCTV footage, which is under review."

However, it was not known how many people were in the car, and there was no description of those in the vehicle.

Additional police

Det Insp Greig Wilkie said inquiries had established that it was not a random shooting.

"The household appears to have been targeted in this attack," he said.

"However, we don't know why and we are working to establish exactly what happened and the motive behind it."

The white car is understood to have been in Millroad Drive before the shooting, and people in the area have been asked to come forward with any information about its occupants.

Det Insp Wilkie added: "We're aware that this incident will be of some concern to local residents and I would like to reassure them that additional police officers will be in the area. Anyone with concerns can approach these officers."

Earlier this month, a man was assaulted and seriously injured during an incident in the same street.
