Ten people are in hospital with minor to major injuries after shots were fired in Manchester, England, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Greater Manchester Police received a report of gunshots at 2:30am on Claremont Road in the Moss Side area and a large number of unarmed and armed officers responded

Several people were in the area after a carnival, which had finished a few hours before, with police trying to establish exactly where the shooting took place and identify those involved.

“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,” Detective Superintendent Dobbie Dooley said.

“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.”

Police said more officers would be patrolling the area over the next few days in a bid to reassure residents.
