A man and a woman have been arrested in connection with a double shooting outside a pub in Edinburgh on Hogmanay.
Emergency services were called to the Anchor Inn pub on Granton Crescent on December 31, at around 11.50pm, after a firearm seriously injured two men.
Both men, aged 38 and 39, were taken to hospital, where the 38-year-old man was pronounced dead a short time later.
One of the men was identified in newspaper reports as Marc Webley, who had urged his enemies to “come and get it” hours before his death.
A murder investigation was subsequently launched, and enquiries led officers to believe an armed driver pulled up in a red Hyundai Tucson to the premises, got out the vehicle and shot the two men, before making off in the direction of Leith.
Police Scotland confirmed on Friday that a man, aged 32, and a woman, aged 25, have been arrested in connection with the incident.
Enquiries remain ongoing at this time.
Detective Superintendent Graham Grant, Major Investigation Team, said: “We’d like to thank the local community for their support and patience while enquiries are ongoing.
“There will continue to be an increased police presence in the area and anyone with further concerns should speak to officers, call 101, or in the case of an emergency, 999.”
