A MUSIC producer was confronted by a gunman who tried to shoot him moments after blasting his friend to death, a court has heard.

Ibrahim Krubally said he was in the kitchen of his Hawkhill Close flat, next to Hibs’ Easter Road stadium, when 30-year-old Dodou Leigh was shot in the hall.

Mr Krubally was giving evidence at the High Court in Edinburgh yesterday during the first day of the trial of three men accused of murdering Mr Leigh.

The 33-year-old told the jury that George Thomson, 30, Roche Thomson, 25, and Kevin Addison, 28, were at the flat to buy cannabis from Mr Leigh. But the DJ – who calls himself Soul Fly or E-Boy – said that Addison shot Mr Leigh as the drug deal turned to robbery.

Mr Krubally said that the Thomsons then pulled knives on him. After escaping to the hall, Mr Krubally said Addison pointed a shotgun at him and tried to fire, but: “Nothing happened. I don’t know whether the gun was jammed or had no bullets.”

All three defendents deny committing murder on ­December 4, 2012.

The trial continues.
