Police investigating the murder of a woman believe she was the victim of a targeted attack.
Police were called to Queen Street in the Farnworth area of Bolton just before 1pm yesterday after receiving a call from the ambulance service.
Officers attended and found a woman dead at the scene.
Formal identification of the 31-year-old victim has yet to be carried out.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said a Home Office post-mortem examination would be carried out to establish the exact cause of death, but it was being treated as suspicious.
Police in Bolton, together with detectives from GMP's major incident team, have launched an investigation.
