A burnt out car thought to be linked to a Glasgow shooting has been found by police.

Officers have been investigating after the car, stolen from Kilwinning back in December, was found on Manse Road on Friday.

It came after frightening scenes in the Salmona Street on Thursday when a man fired gunshots towards a property.

It has been reported that the targeted attack is linked to Glasgow drug dealer Euan EJ Johnston, who was shot dead in 2016.

Officers say car, a purple Nissan Pulsar, registration SE66 KNN, may have been used by those behind the attack.

Anyone who may have seen the vehicle between Thursday, December 5 and Friday, January 17, are urged to contact police.

Neighbours were left in terror after shots were fired at the Salmona Street home at around 11.30pm on Thursday.

The shots were fired by persons who exited a dark coloured four-door car before returning to the waiting vehicle.

The car then left the area in the direction of Auckland Street.

No one was injured and extensive enquiries are ongoing, including a review of CCTV and officers going door to door in the area.

Detective Inspector John Morrison, of Glasgow CID, said: “We believe that the purple Nissan Pulsar may have been used by those who discharged the firearm and are appealing for anyone who may have seen the vehicle to get in touch.

“I would also ask anyone who has private CCTV or who was in the area and may have dashcam footage to check the footage for anything of significance which may assist in our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 3870 of January 16.
