Detective Inspector Kathryn Lester, from GMP’s Oldham district, said: “We’re aware this incident caused some concern in the community as a number of people reported to have heard the noise where a shotgun was suspected to have been used.

“Extensive enquiries have been on-going since the incident which is being treated as isolated and deliberate this time. Finding out exactly what happened and who was responsible has been our priority since it happened and today’s arrest is a huge step forward in getting those answers.
