Gun­man fired at car af­ter chase

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

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.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call po­lice on 101 or Crimes­top­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.
