Detective Inspector Chris Maddocks, from GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: “This was a shocking incident which could easily have resulted in a much graver outcome.

“Our team of detectives are working tirelessly to establish the exact circumstances of this firearms discharge which initial enquiries suggest is linked to the party. We would like to reassure the community that there is not believed to be any wider threat to the public.

“If you were a guest at this party, we are appealing for you to come forward and speak to police as soon as possible. Officers are following multiple lines of enquiry as they work to identify all those who were present at the time. However, the sooner we are able to speak to any witnesses who might hold vital information, the sooner we can protect an intended target, remove a firearm from our streets and bring to justice those responsible.

“I am therefore directly appealing to anyone at this party, or anyone who has any information at all about this incident, to come forwards and talk with us, you will hold important information and my team of officers would like to hear from you.
