Police encouraging email tip-offs in Kevin Carroll murder case

AN email address has been set up to help catch Kevin Carroll's killer, who died in a gangland-style execution.

Strathclyde Police hope the new address - [email protected] - will help the enquiry by encouraging anonymous tip-offs.

Carroll, 29, was shot dead outside Asda's Robroyston store on January 13.

Mr Carroll is understood to have been shot five times as he sat in his black Audi S4, while shocked lunchtime shoppers watched.

His killers, believed to be three masked gunmen, then sped off in a black or dark car.

He is said to have links with the criminal underworld and survived an attempt on his life three years ago.

Detective Superintendent Michael Orr said: "It is important that we communicate with members of the public as their support is vital in this type of murder investigation.

"Some people may not wish to speak to the police but prefer to email information.

"I know that there are individuals with criminal connections who will know about this murder. I am clearly keen to hear from anyone who has heard anything about this case and who may be involved.

"There are undoubtedly people out there who can shed light on motive, background and what has happened after the attack."

He said that the content of people's emails would be treated with the "utmost confidence".

The getaway car was set on fire and dumped around six miles from the scene in Yetts Hole Road, Glenmavis, Airdrie.

Detectives said the car had cloned plates, was stolen in September from the Rutherglen area and originally had the registration AD04 UFC.
