Two men aged 23 and 64, three women aged 20, 27 and 57 and a 17-year-old boy have all been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm after shots were fired through a window in Cheetham Hill early this morning.

The house on Adelaide Street was fired on around 2.00am this morning.

Detective Inspector Mark Davis of GMP’s City of Manchester Division, said: “It’s astonishing that no-one has been injured as the gunshots went straight through the window of the house and narrowly missed the occupants inside.

“From the information that we have, we believe that this is a targeted attack but this does not mean that our investigation ends here.

“We really need people with information specifically about this incident or information linked to it to contact us urgently.

“Although this happened in the early hours of the morning, the gunshots going through the window would have caused quite a lot of loud noise so I’m sure someone in the area would have heard or seen something that was out of the ordinary.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 1146 quoting reference number 250 of 28/05/18 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
