Two people charged over fatal shooting minutes before New Year

Two people are due to appear in court next week after being charged over a fatal shooting in Edinburgh on New Year’s Eve.

Police were called to the Granton area of the city following reports of two men being seriously injured after a firearm was discharged at around 11.50pm last Sunday.

Marc Webley, 38, had been shot outside the Anchor Inn in West Granton Road, before dying in hospital.

Another man, aged 39, was taken to hospital with serious injuries, Police Scotland said, but his condition remains unknown.

A 32-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman were arrested on Friday in connection with the incident, before being charged on Saturday.

Both are due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday and a report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.
