Local News

A man aged 46 was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm after attending a police station yesterday December 12 2018. He has since been released on bail.

Two men aged 35 and 39 were previously arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm following raids at five properties in Prestwich, Salford, Crumpsall, Manchester and Kent have also been released on bail.

The arrests follow the shooting of a man in his 20's who had been attending a music event at Kingston Mill on Cobden Street on Friday evening November 23, before he was later shot outside the venue three times.

He was taken to hospital at around 5.30am on Saturday November 24 and has since been discharged.

It is believed that the shooting was an isolated incident and there is no threat to the wider community.

Officers are continuing to appeal to anyone with information to come forward and have set up a dedicated dropbox facility where mobile footage can be left anonymously.

The anonymous dropbox facility can be accessed by sending footage and information via email to scd.cctv@gmp.police.uk quoting incident number 504 of 24/11/2018.

Information can also be left with police on 0161 856 6777 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
