Greater Manchester Police Investigators offer £50,000 for information on shooting one year on

The reward has been offered for information from the drive-by shooting which took place around a year ago

Investigators at Greater Manchester Police have offered a huge £50,000 reward for information about a drive-by shooting in Moss side. The incident took place in Greater Manchester back in July 2022. 

The shooting occurred outside an address where a party was being held and resulted in two teenage girls being injured. The 16 year old was taken to hospital with serious injuries, whilst another 13 year old girl also sustained injuries believed to be the result of shrapnel from the firearm. Thankfully both have since made a full recovery.

Earlier this month, investigators renewed their appeal 12 months on from the shooting and are urging anyone with information to come forward.

DI Madeline Kelly of the Major Crime Review team said:  "The reckless and dangerous actions of those firing a gun that night could easily have had tragic consequences. We do not believe the two girls were the intended targets that night and were instead simply at the address enjoying a party.

"The actions of those responsible demonstrate that they have zero regard for who they could have hurt. They are dangerous and GMP is determined to find them and hold them to account for such a callous and cowardly attack.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the Moss Side area on Friday the 29 July 2022, between 10pm and 11pm, who may have seen something.

"I am likewise appealing to anyone in the local or wider community who has any information about this incident to report it to police either directly or via Crimestoppers.

"We now have a £50,000 reward available for anyone who has key information that can lead to the successful conviction of those responsible for this horrific attack.”
