Police have launched an attempted murder probe following the incident, which happened at around 8.30pm on Wednesday night on Burnett Road in the Barlanark area of Glasgow.

The boy and teenager were not injured in the incident.

Officers have been checking CCTV footage for any additional information and have carried out door-to-door enquiries.

“I would also ask motorists with dash cams to check their footage, it’s possible they have images which could assist enquires.”
