A gangland murder accused has been cleared of firearms offences.
Ross Monaghan denies shooting Kevin 'Gerbil' Carroll to death in a busy Asda car park.
At the end of the Crown case at the High Court in Glasgow on Tuesday, advocate depute Iain McSporran, prosecuting, withdrew the charges relating to possession of the two guns used in the killing and prohibited ammunition without firearms certificates.
He was also cleared Monaghan of reset of the getaway car, a Volkswagen Golf. Judge lord Brailsford told 30-year-old Monaghan: "I formally acquit you of these charges."
Monaghan is still on trial accused of murdering Mr Carroll by gunning him down near the supermarket in Robroyston, Glasgow, on January 13, 2010. He also denies attempting to pervert the course of justice by disposing of a revolver and a pistol at Academy Street, Coatbridge and setting fire to the getaway car at Yetts Hole Road, Airdrie, on January 13, 2010.
He has lodged a special defence of incrimination blaming eight men for the shooting.
The trial before Lord Brailsford continues.
