A MAN will stand trial accused of brandishing a firearm towards a street while masked.

Martin McGill, 26, allegedly behaved in a threatening or abusive manner in Glasgow's Cathcart on June 29, 2020.

Court papers sated that he brandished an imitation firearm from a window within his house towards a public street.

It is said this was done while McGill was wearing a facemask bearing a skull.

The charge states that McGill stared at an unknown person at the time of the offence.

McGill faces a separate charge of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause Michael Henry and Ionut Dobre to believe that unlawful violence would be used against them.

His final charge claims that he failed to appear at a court date in February this year.

McGill pleaded not guilty yesterday at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the three charges.

A trial was set for next January by sheriff Tom Hughes who continued McGill's bail meantime.
