Police appeal following shooting outside Salford venue

Police are appealing for witnesses after a firearms discharge in Salford.

At 2.50am on Sunday officers were called to reports of a man who turned up at hospital with a gunshot wound.

Initial enquiries suggested that the victim in his 20’s was at an event at Un.titled Studio on Astor Road in Salford. At around 2:50am the victim went outside the venue and was shot.

Currently, the victim’s injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

An investigation has been launched and the victim and their loved ones are being supported by officers.

No arrests have been made at present and a scene will remain in place at the location of the crime while officers conduct further enquiries. Officers are now appealing to the public for further information regarding this incident to please contact GMP directly.

Detective sergeant Karl Perry said: “Firstly, we would like to reassure the public that the victim of this incident is being taken care of by medical professionals and we are working with them to determine further details regarding Sunday’s incident.

“Of course, this incident will clearly be a shock to the local community who live and work nearby, and we are doing everything we can to ensure the victim receives justice. 

“Extensive enquiries are ongoing and finding those responsible remains an absolute priority. This is being treated as an isolated incident and there are a number of extra uniformed patrols in place around the local community and they will remain there over the coming days to provide visible reassurance.”

Anyone who needs reassurance should speak to a police office. Likewise, anyone with mobile phone, dashcam or CCTV footage, should submit this to police.

You can report information by calling 0161 856 5194 or 101 quoting log 637 of 29/10/2023.
