Shortly after 9.10pm last night (Wednesday 6 February 2019), police were called to a house on Howard Street to reports that a gun had been shot at the front door.
Two people were upstairs in the house at the time and fortunately, were not injured.
Officers will remain in the area throughout the day and people with any concerns are encouraged to speak to them.
Police Superintendent Howard Millington of GMP’s Salford District, said:
“We are considering every single piece of information that’s been passed onto us as a possible line of enquiry.
“This includes looking at whether this is linked to any ongoing feuds or previous incidents to be able to find out exactly why this has happened and what we can do to prevent anything like this happening again.
“We have to keep an open mind around the circumstances but from what we know at the moment, it looks like the house was incorrectly targeted.
“What we do know is whoever carried out this shooting clearly intended to cause people fear, which is absolutely unacceptable and we will stand with you, the people of Salford to find out who did this and bring them to justice.
“To make our streets gun-free, we need your help. No-one should be in fear in their own homes, so if you have any information or witnessed anything, contact detectives immediately.
“Our intelligence about incidents like this is only as strong as the information you pass onto us so I am urging you to make contact.
“Did you see something that wasn’t quite right around the time of the incident? It’s been reported that a moped left the scene shortly after – did you see this? Whatever information you have, we’re waiting for your call.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 5360 quoting reference number 2217 of 06/02/19 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
