Police have launched an investigation after gun shots were fired on Jane Street in Weaste.

Just before 9pm on Sunday (June 30) police were called to reports from residents who heard three gunshots in the area.

Officers attended and through initial enquiries in the area, it was established three shots had been fired on Jane Street in Salford.

Detective Inspector Justin Bryant, of GMP’s Salford crime investigation department, said: “Thankfully, no injuries were reported to us but this was reckless and we are trying hard to establish what has happened that led up to us being called.

“We are in the very early stages of our investigation and our main priority now is focussing on a white SUV vehicle which was seen in the area around the time of the incident, finding this vehicle may help us know more about what has happened.

“Extra patrol officers have been deployed in and around the local area both on foot and in patrol cars over the coming days and officers will also be in the area conducting further enquiries to build more of a picture of what has happened.

“We understand and share the local concern that this incident may cause to those living nearby, in Salford or further afield across Greater Manchester. If you have any concerns about this incident, our officers will be happy to provide reassurance and listen to any of your questions.

“It is so important if you have any information, or saw anything suspicious to come forward and speak to us, whether it is CCTV footage, doorbell footage, photos, or descriptions of the suspects or events, we would ask that you report it to us directly.”

If you have any information or footage that could assist the police’s investigation into this incident, please contact GMP on 101 quoting log 3070 of 30/6/2024
