Police in Manchester said 10 people were hospitalized early Sunday as the result of a shooting after a Caribbean carnival in the city.
Greater Manchester police said the injuries range from “minor to major” but most don’t appear to be life-threatening. The shooting was reported about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
Detective Superintendent Debbie Dooley said police were trying to establish “exactly where this incident took place and who is responsible for such a dangerous attack.” She said extra officers would be on patrol to ease the concerns of residents.
The shooting comes amid a spike in gun and knife crime in Britain that has sparked calls for government action in a country where firearms are strictly controlled.
