A group of men threatened a woman with a gun in Wythenshawe last night.
At about 11.35pm a group of men, armed with a machete, an iron bar and a shotgun, went into the communal area of a block of flats on Hockley Road and began to kick at a door.
When a 24-year-old woman answered the door, one of the men threatened her with the gun before discharging it into the hallway of her address. The men then fled on foot in the direction of Firbank Road.
Police are appealing for witnesses. In addition they would like to speak with anyone who has knowledge of a small silver car that was in the area last night and the preceding days which may be linked to the incident.
Detective Inspector Nicholas Haigh of South Manchester division said:
“Fortunately the woman was not hurt, but she was threatened with a gun and this was very distressing for her.
“We understand the community will be alarmed by this incident and we have extra patrols in the area to offer some reassurance.
“If you have any information about what happened, don’t hesitate to speak to an officer. We are not linking this to any other recent shootings in the Manchester area and we do not think that there is a wider threat to the community.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 4882, 101, or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
