    A murder inquiry is under way after a man was shot dead in a Glasgow play park.

    The 23-year-old, named locally as Jamie Lee, was seriously hurt during a large-scale disturbance in the Castlemilk area at about 20:00 on Saturday. He died in hospital the following day.

    A 25-year-old man remains in a serious condition following the incident, which police said involved up to 15 people.

    Four others received more minor injuries.

    Det Ch Insp Martin Fergus said: “It is vital that we trace everyone involved in this incident.

    “Anyone with information that could assist our investigation is urged to contact police at Helen Street, Govan immediately.”

    Supt John McBride said officers would be patrolling the area to reassure the local community.

    He said: “It happened in a sunny Saturday evening when children were undoubtedly out playing in the area and if you’re a parent there and you’ve got a young kid, you probably want that feeling of safety.”

    He added: “It is important for people to know that this was not a random attack, it was a targeted attack involving two separate factions.”

    “It was such a large incident. We have got six people seriously injured, one of whom is still in a critical condition in hospital, one in a stable condition, and four with serious injuries.”

    The area where the attack took place is largely overlooked by housing and officers believe many people will have witnessed the incident as a result.
