A man has been taken to hospital after a suspected shooting in Glasgow.

Police have launched an investigation following the “targeted attack” on Saturday evening.

Officers were called to a report of a man injured in Garlieston Road in the Barlanark area of the city at around 9.25pm on September 25.
