Man shot as he walks along Glasgow street

A 29-year-old man has been shot as he walked along a Glasgow street in the early hours of Saturday.

Strathclyde Police said the man was on Pinkston Drive in Sighthill at about 0245 GMT when he was shot by one of two men who approached him in the street.

He was taken by ambulance to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where staff have described his condition as stable.

The suspects were aged about 30 and ran off towards one of the high flats in Pinkston Drive.

Det Sgt Jim Diamond said: "Thankfully, the man has not been seriously injured, however, it could have been much worse.

"We are currently viewing CCTV from the area and officers have been carrying out door-to-door inquiries.

"Although this happened in the early hours of the morning, Pinkston Drive is a residential area and it maybe that someone either saw or heard the disturbance or shooting, and has information that will help us with our inquiries."
