Greater Manchester Police are investigating a shooting incident which occurred at 10.20pm on Sunday June 29th.

Two men were sitting in a Seat Leon car on Radcliffe Road on Oldham when a gunman approached.

The Gunman spoke to both men within the car for a few seconds before shooting them both.

One man, 19, was taken to hospital for injuries to his abdomen and the other, 20, for treatment to injuries to his buttocks.

The offender, described only as black and dressed in dark clothing with his face covered, then left on foot.

Superintendent Denise Worth, said: “We are at the very early stages of our investigation but believe this was a deliberate and targeted attack and that there is no ongoing threat to the wider community.

“While the injuries are very serious, we do not believe they are life threatening..

“That said, someone has used a deadly weapon in close proximity to the two victims and it is hugely fortunate neither has been killed.

“We are now working to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident with a view to identifying the person responsible and I would encourage anyone with information about what happened, any relevant prelude or information on the offender to call us in absolute confidence.

“We have officers in and around the area and if anyone has any concerns or would like to talk to us please come and speak to one of our officers.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police on 101.
