Police have released a CCTV image of a vehicle of interest in an investigation into a drive-by shooting in Moss Side.

The incident just before 10.30pm on Friday 29 July left two teenage girls – one 16, the other 13 years old – injured.

Neither girl was believed to be the intended target of the shooting, and were just leaving a party on Quinney Street.

The 16-year-old was taken to hospital with serious injuries, while the 13-year-old sustained injuries from shrapnel. Both were discharged from hospital and are recovering at home.

Police are now renewing their appeal for information, including dashcam or doorbell footage.

Officers are interested in sightings of a dark-coloured SUV-type car.

Detective Inspector Madeline Kelly of Xcalibre Task Force said: “This incident could have been far more serious. We do not believe that the two girls were the intended targets, they were just at the address enjoying a party. This shows me that those responsible are dangerous and have zero regard for who could have been injured that night.

“Guns have no place on the streets of Manchester and we are determined to bring those responsible for this callous attack to justice. I am appealing to anyone who was in the Moss Side area on Friday 29 of July, between 10pm and 11pm, who may have seen a vehicle being driven erratically to contact us.

“I am particularly interested in any sightings of a dark coloured SUV type car and I am asking for anyone with dashcam or doorbell footage which may have captured those responsible, either arriving or leaving the area, to please make contact. I have trained officers on hand who can download and review any footage.
