A witness in an alleged murder case screamed her friend was “bleeding out” in the street with “an arrow in his chest” in a desperate 999 call to police.
The recording was played at the High Court in Glasgow on the second day of the trial of Charles Little, who is accused of killing Gordon Diduca.
The 32-year-old, of Dundonald Court, denies firing arrows from a bow at Mr Diduca and others in a stairwell at Dundonald Court in the early hours of September 25 2017, before striking Mr Diduca with a knife and killing him.
Mona Elbakoush, who lived opposite Little in the same close at Dundonald Court, could be heard in the 999 recording, frantically trying to explain events as they unfolded.
While the sergeant on the phone tried to keep her calm, she was heard screaming and crying in the background.
She said in the recording: “Gordon has been hit in the chest with an arrow. He’s lying in the street and he’s bleeding out.
“He has an arrow in his chest.”
She added that Jason Sinclair, another friend, had been “stabbed in the arm”.
The court was told several of her friends had been drinking, taking cocaine and listening to music at her flat when she heard “thumping at the door”.
When she opened the door,she saw Little “standing with a bow” in the close outside her front door.
She said a confrontation ensued between Little and her group of friends.
Mr Diduca died from stab wounds in hospital later.
Little denies a total of five charges including murder, assault, threatening or abusive behaviour and assault to injury, permanent disfigurement and impairment, as well as possession of a Class B controlled substance.
The trial, presided over by Lord Matthews, continues.
