Gunman fired at car after chase
A MASKED gunman opened fire in a quiet cul-de-sac after a car chase.
The shooting took place on Caldeon Avenue, in Moston.
It’s thought one neighbour was unpacking shopping from his car, just yards away from the gunman, when the shooting took place.
One resident, who asked not be named, told the M.E.N. she was in bed when she heard the sound of screeching tyres outside her home.
She said looked out of her bedroom window and saw two cars stopped in the road outside.
A masked man then got out of the rear car, thought to be a red or maroon Ford Fiesta, and fired at least two shots at the other vehicle, at about 10.50pm on Friday.
The resident said : “He got out of the passenger seat of the second car and just started shooting.
“He had his face covered like he was wearing a balaclava or a mask.
“You know stuff like this happens but it’s frightening when it happens on your doorstep.
“They were just scrawny young lads, probably in their late teens or early 20s.”
