10 shot, injured after Caribbean carnival in UK ends up in 10 person shot and some wounded


(AP & AFP) Ten people, including two children, were taken to hospital yesterday with pellet-type wounds after reports of a shooting in Manchester, northern England, police said.

Officers were called at around at 2:30 am to the Moss Side neighbourhood of the city, where a party had been held following a Caribbean carnival nearby.

“Nine people went to hospital, including two children, with pellet-type wounds that are not believed to be serious,” a statement from Greater Manchester Police said. “A tenth person — a man — remains in a stable but serious condition in hospital with injuries to his legs.” 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.
