Two people have been charged after a gangster was shot dead at his local pub in Edinburgh.
Marc Webley was one of two men gunned down outside the Anchor Inn in Granton shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve.
The 38-year-old had shared a series of videos taunting his rivals and daring them to come and get him before he was killed.
Mr Webley died of his injuries in hospital and another man, aged 39, was left in a serious but stable condition.
A 32-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman arrested in connection with the incident have now been charged, but police have not confirmed the alleged offences.
Officers said people in a red Hyundai Tucson pulled up outside the pub in West Granton Road before launching an ‘isolated, targeted attack’.
The driver is thought to have got out the car and fired gunshots before getting back in and fleeing towards Leith.

Both people who were arrested by armed police at a flat in Gorgie Road are due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday, January 8.
Forensics were pictured combing the scene for evidence in the days after the fatal attack.
Floral tributes were also left outside the pub.
Mr Webley had a history of being involved in gangland violence and was sentenced to 11 years in prison for attempted murder in 2005.

Aged 19 at the time, he and another man named James Tant shot a rival thug in Granton in what was described as a failed gangland hit.
He was later jailed for six months for trying to intimidate a man into giving him £1,000 at a garage.
In 2022, he was also cleared of a double murder bid because a witness claimed she could not identify him.
In the lead up to his death, it’s understood Mr Webley told close friends he was expecting to be attacked and had been carrying weapons with him wherever he went.

Britain’s youngest ever Euromillions winner Jane Park had been in a relationship with Mr Webley and she is thought to have only ended things with him three weeks before he was shot dead.
‘I can’t believe I’m writing this,’ she said on Instagram the day after he was killed.
‘We spoke yesterday. If I could cuddle you again and tell you everything is going to be okay, I would give anything to do it Marc.
‘The months we spent together, you taught me some valuable things in life and I will never forget you. I am absolutely devastated. The best bed for you is up there.’
A report on the two people charged over Mr Webley’s alleged killing will be made to the Procurator Fiscal.
