POLICE have said they believe the gunshots which were fired in Renfrew last night were a targeted attack.

We reported earlier how detectives are on the hunt for a man after the incident in Cardon Square at around 8.25pm.

The force said a 36-year-old man was involved in a fight with another man. One of the men, described as being of heavy build with a shaved head, aimed a gun the 36-year old and fired it. 

No-one was injured but the bullet smashed the window of an adjacent flat.

The gun-wielding man then got into a white Audi RS3, which was parked in a cul-de-sac and made off. It is believed there was also a passenger in the car.

Police are now appealing for information from the public.

Detective inspector Robert Bowie, of Paisley CID, is urging anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have witnessed the incident to come forward. 

He said: "The information I have at present leads me to believe this was not a random attack and the 36-year-old man was the intended victim. If you have information about the identity of the driver or recognise his description or that of the car he was driving, I would urge you to get in touch as a matter of urgency.
