Armed police have swooped on a vehicle in the west end of Glasgow as part of an investigation into possible gangland crime.

The marksmen and a police helicopter were dispatched to the Kelvinbridge area of the city around 3.30pm.
Police Scotland confirmed that they had searched and seized a vehicle parked in Great Western Road, near Napiershall Street, in relation to potential organised crime.
A force spokesman said the incident had now concluded, adding: "Police have seized the vehicle as part of an ongoing investigation into serious and organised crime." He added there had been no arrests so far, but inquiries are continuing
A spokeswoman for the fire service, and the ambulance service, said they were not involved.
The incident brought the residential neighbourhood to a standstill. On social media sites, onlookers reported seeing armed police and undercover officers "completely stopping traffic."
Napiershall Street is located close to Glasgow Academy, a private school for boys and girls, and is a short walk from Kelvinbridge Subway station.
The stretch of Great Western Road where officers were carrying out the search is also extremely busy with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
