'Drive-by' shooting in Greater Manchester

Police are appealing for witnesses after shots were fired in Moston.

Two men wearing balaclavas drove past a house on Pentland Road at just before 7pm last night on a red motorbike and fired two shots at it.

Armed response officers attended and secured the scene and confirmed that the damage was consistent with a gunshot being fired. Nobody was injured.

“We are treating this as an isolated incident and do not believe it is connected to last week’s shootings in Clayton and Droylsden.

“Thankfully nobody was injured as a result of this dangerous and reckless act and I want to reassure residents that not only are there extra officers in and around the area, but we will do everything we can to identify the culprit.

– Detective Constable Chris Chadderton
