Ten people, including two children, were hospitalized after a shooting in Manchester, in the north of England, on the night of Saturday to Sunday. Police were called at 2:30 am Sunday, August 12 at Claremont Road, in the Moss Side neighborhood, and found several injured people.
A man is in a serious but stable condition and nine other people, including two children, have been injured by shots, the police said later in the morning. Police hope the light casualties will be able to leave the hospital during the day.
There was some affluence in the Moss Side neighborhood, while a Caribbean carnival ended a few hours earlier, police said.
"A serious act"
The investigators are trying to establish exactly where this incident took place and who is responsible. "It was a serious act that could have had dramatic consequences," said police chief Wasim Chaudhry.
Manchester was hit by an attack on May 22, 2017, portrayed by a 22-year-old Briton of Libyan origin who unleashed an explosive device at the exit of a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena . Twenty-two people died in this attack and a hundred spectators were injured. The youngest victim, Saffie Roussos, was 8.
