GANGSTER Kevin ‘Gerbil’ Carroll was killed in a hail of 13 bullets, a murder trial heard yesterday. Firearms expert Ronald Withers, 67, said Carroll was shot in the forehead as he sat in his Audi in an Asda car park. The witness told the High Court in Glasgow how Carroll was also blasted twice in the jaw as two gunmen opened fire on him. Mr Withers said all three bullets first went through his wrists and fingers as he tried in vain to protect himself with his hands. Carroll was also hit in the chest and groin during the 25-second gun attack in Robroyston, Glasgow. Mr Withers said he was present when Carroll’s body was searched at a police garage. He said: “As his clothing was being removed two bullets fell out. They had entered his body, exited and then fell from the clothing.” Eight of the 13 fatal bullets were fired from a black self-loading pistol, with the rest coming from a silver revolver. A 14th bullet missed. A jury heard murder accused Ross Monaghan’s DNA was found on the pistol. But the trial also heard the weapon had the DNA of a forensic lab technician who worked three floors above where the gun was stored. Monaghan, 30, denies killing Carroll in January 2010. The trial continues.
