DRIVE-BY MIRACLE ESCAPE.
A YOUNG man with learning difficulties had a mi rac l e es c ape yesterday when hi s flat was targeted in a drive-by shooting.
The shots shattered the window of the man's care in the community f lat in the early hours. But he was unhurt in the attack.
Ne i g h b o u r s i n t h e Ba rmu l lo c h a r e a of Glasgow's east end believe the shooting was a case of mistaken identity.
The recent gang land torture of underworld twins Bryan and James Hanlon has been linked to the area's notorious Barmulloch Crew.
One neighbour said: "I can't believe it. It's like something out of a gangland movie.
"It was a drive-by shooting in the middle of the night.
"I can only presume it was mistaken identity because it's a care in the community flat.
"Nobody was hurt this time but it is just pure luck because I think the man was in the flat."
"I know that some of the guys suspected of the Hanlon hits l ive around here."
The f lat on Quarrywood Avenue is owned by the Loretto Housing Association, who provide ca r e and suppor t to vulnerable people.
No one was available for comment at Loret to last night.
A police spokesman said the shooting happened at about 4.35am.
Detective Sergeant Eddie Waye appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
HIT: The flat window. Right, police at the scene
