Local man charged following Oldham car park shooting

Date published: 24 November 2018

A man has been charged in relation to a shooting in Oldham.

Ryan Horsfall, aged 19, of Ashley Close, Oldham has been charged with violent disorder.

He was remanded to appear at Tameside Magistrates Court yesterday (Friday).

Shortly before 2.10pm on Monday (November 19), police received reports that shots had been fired in a carpark at the junction of Ashton Road and Copster Hill Road.

Two men were seen getting out of a blue Vauxhall Astra before firing shotguns at a number of other men.

Officers swiftly responded but the offenders and the victim had already left the scene.

A short time later a 19-year-old man presented himself at hospital with gunshot wounds to his back, legs and buttocks.

A woman in her 50s later reported that she had been standing close to the carpark at the time of the incident and was hit by what is believed to have been a stray pellet.

The woman received a graze to the back of her knee, narrowly avoiding a serious injury.
