Police have arrested six people after gunshots were fired through the window of a house in North Manchester on Bank Holiday Monday.

At around 2am on Monday there were reports of shots being fired at a house on Adelaide Street in Cheetham Hill.

Specialist officers attended and found damage to a house consistent with a firearms discharge.

Two men aged 23 and 64, three women aged 20, 27 and 57 and a 17-year-old boy have all been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm. They all remain in police custody for questioning.

Detective Inspector Mark Davis of Greater Manchester Police’s City of Manchester Division, said:

It’s astonishing that no-one has been injured as the gunshots went straight through the window of the house and narrowly missed the occupants inside.
