WATCH: CCTV footage of gunmen who shot at Social Services building

CCTV footage of two gunmen graffitiing and shooting at a Social Services building in Greater Manchester has been released by police.

The gunmen pulled out handguns and shot at the door of the Harpurhey District Office in April.

The building houses both Manchester Adults and Children's Services. Nobody was injured.

One of the men also graffitied the door before the shooting. Afterwards, both of the men ran away before jumping into a car and driving off.

Officers who were called to the offices the next day discovered bullet shell casings and damage to the door of the building.

Witnesses have described the two men as wearing balaclavas and dark clothing.

Greater Manchester Police are urging anyone with information to contact them on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800555111.

"We suspect this was a targeted attack on this building.

“The footage we have released demonstrates that these are dangerous men, they possess three firearms and seem willing to fire indiscriminately without knowing if anyone was in harm’s way.

“We continue to work with Manchester City Council to ensure the safety of those who work in and use the building, but the public can also assist us in keeping the people in that building safe.

“If you recognise these men, or the vehicle pictured in the images we have released, please call the police as a matter of urgency, so we can remove the threat they pose from the streets.”

– Detective Constable Natalia Montano, GMP’s North Manchester Division
