A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man collapsed outside a police station in Greater Manchester.

Police say they believe Kieran McGrath, 26, drove himself to Ashton-under-Lyne police station on Manchester Road after being shot in a "targeted attack".

He was pronounced dead at the scene on Saturday night. Post-mortem tests show he died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

A 23-year-old man is in custody for questioning, police said.

Officers believe Mr McGrath was shot after leaving the nearby Sheldon Arms pub where he had been with friends.

At about 22:20 BST, he walked out of the main entrance towards a white Audi A3 on the car park.

Several shots were fired in his direction and one hit him, police said.
