Andre Marshall: Man held over ex-Gooch Gang member shooting

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a former gang member in a shooting in Greater Manchester.

Andre Marshall, 29, was found dead next to a car at Manor Park in Urmston, on Wednesday.

Police said Marshall, a member of the Moss Side Gooch Gang in Manchester who was jailed in 2008 for a gun attack, had been shot in his torso and leg.

An 18-year-old from Trafford is being held over his death, said Greater Manchester Police.

Marshall was jailed for assault and possession of a firearm following an attack at a gym in 2007.

His former gang was involved in clashes with rival gangs during the 1990s.
