Ten people in hospital after Manchester shooting

2018-08-12 19:12
Police in Manchester said 10 people injured after shooting at Caribbean Carnival early on Sunday (August 12) sustained no life-threatening injuries and one of them discharged themselves from hospital. Chief Superintendent Wasim Chaudhry said most of the injuries had been caused by pellets, which police attribute to the possible discharge of a shotgun. Investigation was underway at the scene of shooting in the Claremont Road area of Manchester's inner-city Moss Side neighbourhood and Chaudhry said police were investigating attempted murder. A statement on the Greater Manchester Police website said two children were among those injured and one individual is in stable, but serious condition after suffering injuries to their legs. Moss Side is historically one of Britain's most deprived areas and experienced a high rate of gang related shootings until the mid-2000s.
