policePolice revisit scene of Drumbrae firearm incident

Police will be carrying out further checks in the Drumbrae area of Edinburgh this evening, Friday 17 October, following the discharge of a firearm a week ago.

No-one was injured in the incident, which happened last Friday 10 October at around 11.30pm in Drumbrae Terrace. Seven days on, officers will be stopping and speaking to members of the public as extensive inquiries continue.

Chief Inspector Graham McInarlin said: “High-visibility patrols have been carried out over the past week, to provide reassurance to local people as well as give the opportunity for them to pass on any information which may assist the inquiry.

“Tonight we will be continuing those patrols with the aim of speaking to anyone who was in the area a week ago or may have seen or heard anything suspicious.

“I would like to thank the community for their assistance and support following this incident, which is highly unusual for the area. Police Scotland will not tolerate such reckless and dangerous acts and we are committing significant resources into identifying those responsible and bringing them to justice.”

Anyone with any information should contact Police Scotland on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
