SEVEN men have gone on trial accused of murdering a man with a sub-machine pistol.

Mohamud Mohamud, 30, Ahmed Ahmed, 28, Cadil Huseen, 23, Hussein Ali, 26, Liban Ahmed, 30, Said Fadal, 32, and Said Tarabi, 27, deny murdering 25-year-old Mohamed Abdi in Willowbrae on May 26, last year.

It is alleged they repeatedly fired after a car chase along Duddingston Road West, Willowbrae Road and Abercorn Avenue.

The seven are accused of forcing the car occupied by Mr Abdi, Mohamed Farah and Abdulrakim Abdulrahman to stop by colliding with it and repeatedly shooting at the occupants, murdering Mr Adbi and attempting to murder the other two men.

Mohamud and the others are also accused of assault, of being concerned in the supply of cocaine and firearms charges.

At the High Court in Glasgow defence counsel for the seven entered not guilty pleas to all charges.

Ali lodged a special defence of incrimination and Liban Ahmed, Fadal and Tabari lodged special defences of alibi. The trial continues.
