SENIOR detectives have said the response to a public appeal for information after a man was shot to death has so far been "limited" - despite a risk to children.

Gary More was gunned down outside his Airdrie home last Thursday evening and died at the scene.

Investigating officers have called on anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Superintendent Jim Smith from the Major Investigations Team said: “Our priority is to trace whoever is responsible for this murder.

"Although we believe Gary was the intended target, the shooting was carried out in a busy residential area with absolutely no regard for public safety.

"The response received from the public has been limited.

"This is despite the fact that children and members of the public were there at the time and could so easily have been injured.

"I am urging anyone with information to please pass it on to police."

Gary was outside is house on Gartness Drive, Chapelhall, when the shooter got out of a white vehicle, believed to be a Skoda Fabia.

The car was seen to turn left onto Bowhouse Brae Road where it was lost to view.

Officers believe there were a number of occupants within this vehicle.

The same model and colour of car was later found burnt out near Craigmaddie Road in Balmore, Milngavie.

Despite the damage, forensic experts are now examining the car, which was stolen on August 2 in Pollokshields.

Its true numberplate is SH13 UMG but it is not known what registration plates were on it when it was set alight.

Enquiries continue to ascertain if this car is the same vehicle used in the murder.

Police are also combing CCTV from the night of September 6 and have spotted a similar Skoda Octavia at Towers Road, Connor Street, Burnhead Road and at the roundabout known as the Four-ways roundabout, all in the Airdrie area.

There is also a possible sighting of a white Skoda Fabia near to Kirkintilloch which is heading in the general direction of where the burnt out vehicle was found.

Motorists travelling on these roads between 7pm and 11pm on Thursday, September 6, who may have seen this vehicle are asked to come forward.

Anyone with any dash cam footage is asked to contact the enquiry team as the footage may have captured vital images which could assist in the murder inquiry.

Mr Smith added: “A team of highly experienced detectives continue to work on this enquiry.

"We are doing everything we can to trace whoever is responsible and we would appreciate any assistance the public can provide, as even the smallest piece of information could be vital to this murder investigation.

"It may be that people are reluctant to come forward, however, I would like to reassure people that information can be given in confidence and you can also contact Crimestoppers where you can remain anonymous.

“Additional officers continue to patrol the area to provide public reassurance to the local community and anyone with concerns should speak to officers.”
