A trio have been sentenced after a man was lured from a Swinton restaurant before he was shot in the knee in the car park. 

Local News

Today (Monday 19 November 2018), the following people were sentenced at Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square. 

Dmaine Robinson (27/02/1986) of Graythorpe Walk, Salford was sentenced to 11 years and eight months after pleading guilty to conspiracy to possessing firearms to commit an indictable offence and conspiracy to commit GBH with intent. 

Michael Crimes (27/10/1978) of Littlegreen Gardens, Salford was sentenced to six years and five months after pleading guilty to participating in in the activity of an organised crime group.

Amy Cooper (17/04/1986) of Barrfield Road, Salford was sentenced to 18 months, suspended for two years, after pleading guilty to assisting an offender.

The court heard how on Sunday 4 February 2018 at around 6.30pm, the victim – a 30-year-old man – was in Alberts Restaurant on East Lancashire Road in Swinton with friends. 


“Three people have today been held to account for their actions that left a man in hospital with serious leg injuries. Thankfully, he has recovered but clearly this incident could easily have had much worse consequences. 

“Robinson stood back and watched as the group left the restaurant. He knew full well what was about to happen and had plenty of opportunity to stop it or raise the alarm but instead he watched it unfold and attempted to cover his tracks. 

“While these individuals have today been sentenced for their role in this conspiracy, our investigation remains ongoing and our team are currently following several lines of enquiry in an attempt to identify the shooter and anyone else involved to ensure they are held accountable for their actions. 

“Throughout the whole operation we have worked closely with our partners, sharing expertise to enable us to crack down on organised crime across Salford. We will continue to work alongside them to bring those involved in organised crime to justice.”
