Detectives investigating a shooting in Renfrew interviewed more than 60 people as they returned to the scene exactly a week after the crime took place.

A team of officers stopped traffic and spoke with pedestrians at the roundabout at Laymoor Avenue and Kings Inch Road between 11.15pm and midnight on Thursday.

And police say that, as a result of the operation, they are following “potentially positive lines of enquiry” into the shooting incident in nearby Kenley Road late at night on November 23, when bullets were fired through the window of a flat.

The targeted attack is being linked to another shooting which took place in Lenzie, East Dunbartonshire, at around 8.45pm that night, in which a gun was fired at a Kia Picanto car driven by a 33-year-old man.

Police, who have confirmed that no-one was injured in either incident, also revisited the Lenzie crime scene on Thursday night to interview potential witnesses.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Fergus, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigations Team, told The Gazette: “The aim of this operation was to speak to members of the public who perhaps use these routes on a regular basis, around the times that the incidents took place, in the hope that they remember something which could assist our enquiries.

“We have spoken to more than 100 people and received positive feedback.

“This information is now being assessed by officers in the inquiry team, with any relevant lines of enquiry being followed up.”

Police have said both shootings were carried out by the same culprits and may have involved more than one car.

DCI Fergus added: “It is absolutely vital that anyone who was in either area at the time and may have noticed anything suspicious comes forward to assist with our investigation.

“Perhaps someone heard a loud noise which could have been a gunshot or saw people running away or vehicles making off at speed? Were there any vehicles that seemed out of place waiting around either area?

“Even the slightest piece of information could prove vital to helping us find out who is behind these reckless and dangerous acts.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
