Man arrested more than three months after dog walker fatally shot

A 75-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of a dog walker who was shot more than three months ago.

Brian Low, 65, was shot at about 8.30am on Saturday 17 February while walking his black Labrador on a remote track in the Pitilie area on the outskirts of Aberfeldy, Perthshire.

His dog was found safe and well by his side.

Mr Low’s death was initially treated as non-suspicious and medical-related until concerns were raised days later.

A two-doctor post-mortem eventually took place on Friday 23 February, which confirmed he had been shot.

A murder investigation was subsequently launched, with Mr Low’s family notified the following day.

Officers who failed to spot that he had been shot could face a misconduct inquirya former senior detective told Sky News in April.

In an update on Friday, Police Scotland announced a 75-year-old man had been arrested in connection with Mr Low’s death.

A force spokesperson said: “The arrested man is in custody being questioned by detectives from the Major Investigation Team.

“As the investigation is ongoing, we are unable to comment further at this time.”
