Detectives are investigating links between a man who is being shot and thugs who have set up a “war zone” days earlier.

Officers yesterday asked the public for help as they investigated an assassination attempt.

A 31-year-old man received gunshot wounds after he was attacked in Glasgow’s Baillieston area just after midnight on Friday.

He sounded the alarm with residents of Barony Drive.

The incident came less than a week after a man was attacked with a sword in another area of ​​the city.

A man was repeatedly stabbed in the head in Skerray Street, Milton, on Sunday, January 9th. Locals said the area was turned into a “war zone”.



Police cars on the scene in Barony Drive, Baillieston.

Police said the investigation into the stabbing “is still ongoing”.

Detectives yesterday tried to determine if the two incidents are connected.

A source said: “Attacks like this obviously do not happen by accident.

“The officers working on this investigation will do everything they can to catch those responsible.

“They will not rule anything out unless they are 100 percent.”

Shocked neighbors told that the shot victim stumbled down the street and knocked on a neighbor’s door for help.

He was taken to Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital before being transferred to the city’s Royal Infirmary, where he will be treated.

Detective Inspector Andy Wright said: “Upon inquiry, we are now able to confirm that this man was shot in the Barony Drive area shortly before he was found.

“We want increased patrols there, and I want to assure the local community that every effort is being made to track down who is responsible.”
