After the second round of shots, they were seen to flee in the direction of Craigmillar Castle Avenue.

"I am again appealing to anyone who has any information which may assist us and who hasn’t already spoken to police to get in touch. Any piece of information, no matter how small, could be relevant.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident 0961 of 2 November, 2023. Alternatively, information can be passed to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
