Detective Superintendent Kevin Jamieson, Major Investigation Teams, said: “The response from the public so far has been encouraging; people are really shocked about what has happened. 

"From our enquires, we believe now that a dark blue Skoda car - a newer model, possibly an estate car - was in the area at the time of the shooting and it was seen to drive off at speed after the attack in the direction of Blantyre Main Street, possibly towards Douglas St and maybe the expressway or other roads nearby.

"Whether linked to the incident or not, we are still interested in speaking to its occupants or indeed anyone who may have seen the car, or who may be has dash-cam footage of it in Caithness Street, either before or afterwards, or in streets nearby.

"As said before, it is imperative we catch those responsible for Graham’s murder. We have set up a dedicated website that gives members of the public access to a form to send information direct to the major incident teams based at the Scottish Crime Campus.  This can be accessed via https://mipp.police.uk/operation/SCOT19S01-PO1.

"I would encourage anyone with information to contact us through this website or to call us on 101, quoting reference number 2517 of 17 August 2020. Alternatively, if you would prefer to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

High visibility officers will remain in the area and members of the public are encouraged to speak to them should they have any concerns or information.
