Joseph Ryan was shot on 11 November 2005 in Ryan Way, Rutherglen at about 2.25pm.

He was found bleeding in the street at about 2.45pm and taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary but died soon after arriving.

He was a convicted drug dealer having been convicted for dealing cocaine and for possessing two handguns in 1997 for which he was jailed for 10 years.

Police said that they were interested in identifying a man that was seen to be running from the flats just after the shooting. He was described as being in his late 20s or early 30s, around 5ft 6in tall, with a medium build and had been wearing a black beanie hat and dark clothes.

A neighbour said 'Joseph is well known in the area and has made a lot of enemies.'.
