MINDLESS thugs tried to kill a 10-year-old boy and a teenager who were walking in the street. 

A car was driven at the pair, who were in Burnett Road, Barlanark, on Wednesday night at around 8.30pm. 

Thankfully, neither the boy nor the 19-year-old man were injured but they were left "badly shaken" by the incident, police said.
