Officers in appeal after gun attack on house
ARMED officers swooped on a street in Crumpsall after shots were fired at a house.
Police were called to a property on Middleton Road in the early hours of last Wednesday following reports of a gun attack.
Officers found two bullet holes in the front door of a house.
Shots are understood to have been fired at around 12.30am. Police were called around 90 minutes later.
A cordon was put up around the house on Thursday and officers remained at the scene through the day.
Crime Scene Investigators in white overalls were seen removing the front door, with a bullet hole visible, to take it away for forensic analysis.
There were no injuries, ‘but there could easily have been’, police said.
Detectives are now appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Insp Muzemil Kernain, from GMP’s City of Manchester team, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who may have information about this incident.
“Thankfully there were no injuries but that does not mean we will take it any less seriously, as there could easily have been.
“Guns are not welcome on our streets and we will do all that we can to find those who use them and bring them to justice.
“I would like to hear from anyone who may have any information, no matter how small.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101, quoting the reference number 115 of March 7.
Reports can also be made to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
