Earlier this month, a 28-year-old man was charged in connection with the death of Bradley and a blade assault on a father and son in their Greenbank home in March.

Sean Orman made no plea when he appeared in private from custody at Edinburgh Sheriff Court facing allegations including the illegal possession of a firearm in a public place.

The Greenbank incident saw wealthy David McMillan, 48, along with his 22-year-old namesake son, allegedly attacked in their home a month before Trainspotting 2 actor and reformed criminal Bradley was killed by a single gunshot to the head on the steps down to his basement apartment.

His terrified partner, their daughter and Bradley’s stepson were in the apartment at the time.

Seconds before the shooting, at around 7.40pm, the victim had been talking to a neighbour, who later told officers that he had attempted to give him first aid. Despite his efforts, Bradley was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
