Attempt Murder Investigation

GMP are investigating a firearms discharge that occurred on Stockport Road, Longsight on 21st December 2023.

Details of Incident

Between 15:00 hrs and 15:10 hrs 21st December 2023, 3 x males have been shot at by an unknown suspect on Stockport Road close to the Apollo Theatre. It is alleged that the suspect has arrived at the scene in a vehicle and has alighted this vehicle in possession of a firearm.

Multiple shots have been directed to the victims of this offence before the suspect has got back into the vehicle. The vehicle has made off from the scene towards Longsight away from Manchester City Centre.

Detectives have now launched an investigation into this incident and are appealing for information from the public.

This could include personal knowledge of the offence or offender(s), any private CCTV/ Ring doorbell or Dash cam footage of any suspicious activity in that area between these times or direct witnesses who were in the area at that time and saw or heard suspicious activity on Stockport Road or in the immediate area before and after the offence has taken place.

We are also appealing for any information relating to the movements of the offending vehicle which would be of significant value to the Police investigation.

We are keen to appeal to local people in the Ardwick and Longsight area of Greater Manchester.
