Ten People In Hospital After Shooting After Manchester's Caribbean Carnival

Ten People In Hospital After Shooting After Manchester's Caribbean Carnival

Ten people have been injured following a shooting at an incident at Manchester's Caribbean Carnival in Moss Side.

The Greater Manchester Police were called to Claremont Road at about 2.30am on Sunday after shots were fired. Ten people have been injured, although many of their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

It is thought that the incident occurred whilst a post-carnival street party was happening. It isn't clear whether the shooting was targeted or whether the shots were fired at random.

Detective Superintendent Debbie Dooley said: "We currently have a number of people in hospital all being treated for different injuries but thankfully most do not appear to be life-threatening at this time.

"Officers are trying to establish exactly where this incident took place and who is responsible for such a dangerous attack.

"Those living or visiting the area will understandably be concerned by this incident and we will have extra officers patrolling the area throughout the morning and into the coming days."

"The area is being searched and examined while we are also trying to speak to as many people as possible and are reviewing CCTV to get all the facts.

"The Caribbean Carnival had been taking place earlier that day but had finished several hours prior to this incident occurring, which is why there were still a lot of people in the area.

"If you do have any concerns please approach them and they will try and help in any way they can."
