Police are currently responding to an incident on Cromwell Road close to the Shell petrol station this afternoon after reports of another shooting in Salford.
Officers were called after a 39-year-old man self reported to hospital with a gunshot wound to his foot, echoing a similar incident which happened just days ago on nearby Littleton Road, when a man also self reported with a gunshot wound to his hand.
However, police are saying that both incidents are not being considered as being linked.
The area around the garage has been taped off and Cromwell Road is closed in both directions as search teams scour the area, although the garage itself is still open to the public on foot.
A spokesman for GMP said:
This makes this now the third shooting incident in Salford within a week after shots were fired at a 20-year-old cyclist in Winton.

Despite adverse weather conditions and repeated warnings about mass gatherings with the covid pandemic, it was certain that the people would turn out to pay their respects at Eccles War Memorial today.
Several hundred attended the muted service to lay wreaths, poppies and individual messages of support for the fallen.
Wreaths were laid by The Merchant Navy Association, Eccles Labour Party, British Legion, Royal Air Force, Boy Scouts and others.
A two minute silence was respectfully observed, whilst the poem, For The Fallen by Laurence Binyon was read out with the immortal line, "We will remember them.
The crowd was once again of all ages with children laying crosses and poppies, local motorcycle groups once again attended with flags flying from their bikes and were roundly applauded as they drove away.
A sad day, but heartening to see people attending and lets be honest, they were not going to stay away as other Remembrance Sunday services in Salford testified.
