Gang jailed for life after man shot and killed at traffic lights

Four men have been jailed for life for the murder of a man who was shot in the head as he sat in a car at traffic lights.

Kenny Reilly, 29, was shot in Maryhill, Glasgow, on 16 April 2018 and died two days later.

On Wednesday, a jury found John Kennedy, Darren Eadie, Morton Eadie and Ross Fisher guilty of his murder. All four were also found guilty of attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

Morton Eadie, 56, driving the car, pulled up alongside the car Mr Reilly was in as it stopped at traffic lights. Kennedy, 41, then opened the door and shot at Mr Reilly.

Fisher, 30, had sourced the stolen car used in the attack, and Darren Eadie, 30, brought the men together for the murder.

David Green, procurator fiscal for homicide and major crime, said: “This was a brazen, calculated murder in a public place that not only took the life of Kenny Reilly but showed a complete disregard for the safety of others.

“These four men took steps to try and conceal their actions, but thanks to diligent work by investigators and prosecutors, they have been brought to justice. This verdict and sentence mark the end of a long and complex investigation.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr Reilly at what must be a distressing time for them.”
