A third person has 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 were taken to hospital where a 38-year-old, identified as Marc Webley, was pronounced dead.

Police confirmed that a 33-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the incident on Monday.

This marks the third arrest in the case with officers saying that further enquiries are “ongoing”.

This comes after a 32-year-old man and 25-year-old woman were charged in connection with the incident.

The pair appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday charged with murder as well as the assault and attempted murder of the second man.

Both made no plea and were remanded in custody and are expected to appear in court within in the next eight days.

In videos posted just hours before his death on social media, Webley urged his enemies to “come and get it”.

He was previously convicted of taking part in a gangland shooting in 2005 and spent 11 years behind bars.

Webley was also cleared of two attempted murders in the capital back in 2022.
