Police have released CCTV images of man they want to trace in connection with a shooting on the south side of Glasgow.

A 34-year-old man was shot in the leg in Shawhill Road, Shawlands, at about 08:10 on Thursday 9 March.

He had just finished strapping his four-year-old son into his car seat when he was attacked.

Police said they believe a man seen on CCTV cameras in Shawhill Road at the time of the incident may be able to help with their inquiries.

The man was then seen heading towards Pollokshaws Road via Hector Road and Rossendale Road.

The injured man was treated at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital but was later released.

In a statement, police said the man in the CCTV image was white, about 5ft 7in, and of medium to stocky build.

He wore a grey beanie hat, a light-coloured T-shirt or polo shirt and black trousers.

He was also wearing a mid-length, dark green, khaki jacket with an emblem on the sleeve and black boots.

Anyone with information should contact police.
