Nicknamed "Gerbil", Kevin Carroll was associated with the city's Daniels crime family

Police are continuing to investigate the murder of Kevin Carroll, who was gunned down in the car park of the Asda store in the Robroyston area of Glasgow. The 29-year-old died at the scene after being shot five times while sitting in his black AudiThree masked men fled the scene in a black or dark coloured car at around 1:25pm on Wednesday. Nicknamed "Gerbil", Mr Carroll was associated with the city's Daniels crime family, and had survived two previous attempts on his life. His girlfriend, Kelly Bo, is the daughter of gang boss Jamie Daniel.With his death, there are fears that an already violent drugs war between rival families could escalate.
At Holyrood yesterday, Paul Martin, MSP for Glasgow Springburn, challenged the First Minister to act after the shooting in his constituency.Speaking during First Minister's Questions, the Labour MSP said the man was shot dead outside "one of Scotland's busiest supermarkets" in broad daylight, and called on Mr Salmond to "show leadership by standing up to these unacceptable gangland activities".
Mr Martin requested a meeting with justice secretary Kenny MacAskill "to discuss how we take the most effective action".In response, Mr Salmond indicated that Mr MacAskill would be "delighted" to attend a meeting, adding that the government's "long overdue" Serious Organised Crime Taskforce initiative is part of the battle against crime.
Mr Martin later added: "There's a real concern for public safety, and I've called on the police to ensure there's maximum resources to find the perpetrators.
"But also, there needs to be action taken to disrupt these gangland networks."
There were heightened police patrols in the Robroyston area yesterday, with officers continuing a detailed search of the supermarket car park at Saughs Road.
Mr Carroll's car was removed from the scene on Wednesday evening for further examination, but around 60 vehicles remained impounded while the investigation continued. Det Supt Michael Orr of Strathclyde Police renewed his appeal for anyone with information to contact the force.The Asda store reopened yesterday afternoon. A spokeswoman for the chain said it will continue to work closely with police. Mr Carroll survived a double shooting in Bishopbriggs in north Glasgow in November 2006, when shots were fired at him and a friend from a car. A month on, his rival, Robert Picket, escaped with his life after being shot at a garage in the Lambhill area. In the same attack, Michael Lyons, another underworld figure, died
