    Four people have been arrested in connection with a Swinton shooting following morning raids.

    Greater Manchester Police executed warrants on Thursday 10 May in Pendleton, Irlam and Eccles as part of Operation Macaroni – an investigation into a shooting on 4 February this year.

    In the incident a 30-year-old man was shot in a car park on East Lancashire Road.

    At the time the man was taken to hospital with a serious gunshot wound to the leg. He has since been discharged and continues to recover.

    The shooter - who was dressed in dark clothing - fled the scene in silver Ford Focus.

    One woman and three men were arrested on charges including conspiracy to commit murder and the supply of Class B drugs.

    Superintendent Howard Millington, of GMP’s Salford borough, said: “We have been carrying out extensive enquiries into this shooting and we now have four people in custody being questioned by officers.

    “I must stress our investigation does not stop here and we will continue to do everything we can to find those connected to this dangerous attack.

    “I would continue to appeal to anyone with any information about it to please come forward to police.”
