THE sister of a young man shot dead outside his home in Airdrie has told of the moment he died in her arms.

Gary More was shot multiple times while talking to a friend outside of his address on Gartness Drive, Chapelhall, Airdrie, on September 6.

In the days following, police have received no information from the public about the murder of the 32-year-old, which is being described as targeted.

Detective Superintendent Allan Burton revealed that the gunmen opened fire on the father-of-two as he stood beside a friend in his driveway.

The friend, who had attended at Gary's home minutes before, was uninjured.

A mother and young child were said to be just feet away from the victim minutes before a white Skoda Fabia pulled up and discharged a number of shots from a handgun.

Mr More was rushed to hospital after being struck several times on the body, but died a short time later.

Lyndsey More sobbed as she recalled attending one of her brother's fitness classes the day before he was brutally killed, and appealed to anyone with information to come forward.

She said: “He was a son, brother, father and uncle. Life for us will never be the same again without Gary in it.

“He was my wee brother and as his big sister I was felt that it was my job to look after him.

“Addiction touches so many families and ours was no different. Gary was dealing with his own issues but he was trying to help other people at the same time.

“He used fitness as a way to help him through some difficult times and he encouraged and helped other people to do the same.

“Gary had made a lot of progress recently and I was proud of the way he had been focusing on his training and building up his fitness classes at his gym.

“I was at one of his yoga classes on Tuesday night, not knowing the next time I would see him he would be dying in my arms.

“I pray that no other family has to go through this experience.

"Unfortunately things like this seem to be happening more and more and we all sit thinking it’s never going to happen to us.

“Please don’t let another family suffer the way we have. If you know anything please tell the police.”

Detective Superintendent Burton described the fact that no members of the public have come forward with information as 'unusual'.

He added: "There's man running about out there with a gun and I need to get him off the streets.

"We have not established fully why Gary was attacked. He has had his issues, he was dealing with them admirably.

"He was running fitness classes, he is very close with his family and visited his mum every day and took his children up and down to school every day.

"He has turned his life around. Addiction touches many families, but did he deserve to get shot on his door step? No.

"The white Skoda Fabia, four door, with black wing mirrors and black handles was stolen a few weeks before this and was running about with false plates on it - it might have been in your petrol station, it might have been in your street.

"If you are fearful that the people who done this will come after you, we will protect you."
