A man has been arrested following the death of another man, who was fatally shot on the doorstep of his home in Greenock.
Neil Canney was seriously wounded on the doorstep of his home in Nairn Road, Larkfield, after a firearm was discharged shortly after 1am on February 28.
The 37-year-old was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, where he died a short time later.
A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with Mr Canney’s death, and Police Scotland confirmed that their enquiries are ongoing.
On Wednesday, Detective superintendent Cameron Miller said: “Although we have yet to establish the motive for this attack, it does appear to have been a targeted incident.
“That said, this is a shocking incident and our thoughts are with Mr Canney’s family.
“Extensive police enquiries are ongoing at this time and officers are gathering CCTV footage from the surrounding area.
“Our officers are also going door to door and there is a continued high visibility police presence in the area.”
