A man is being treated in hospital following reports of a shooting in Glasgow.

Police were called to Springburn at about 11:15 after gunshots were heard in the Dykemuir Street area.

Officers were later alerted to a man attending hospital with injuries thought to have been caused by a firearm. His condition is not known.

Police have extra patrols in the area to reassure the public and asked anyone with concerns to contact officers.

The incident happened in the same street where a 26-year-old man was shot in March last year.

The man was in a car with members of his family and was approached by two men when he got out.

Following the latest incident, a police spokesman said: "Police inquiries are now being carried out in the Dykemuir Street area to establish more details and the circumstances surrounding this incident."
