Two men have been sentenced for their role in the "cold-blooded" murder of an ex-gang member.

Andre Marshall, 29, was found with fatal gunshot wounds at Manor Park, Urmston, Trafford, in May of last year.

Danial Shahid, 19, of Stretford, was detained at a young offenders' institute for four years and and Kadell Rivers, 21, also of Stretford, was jailed for three-and-a-half years.

Murder suspect Abdul Ashan, 19, has been on the run since July.

Shahid, of Carlton Street, denied assisting an offender but was found guilty after a trial at Manchester Crown Court.

Rivers, of Skelton Road, admitted the same charge and two weapons charges.

Mr Marshall was jailed in 2008 for assault and possession of a firearm following an attack at a gym in 2007.

He was a member of the Gooch Gang from Manchester's Moss Side, which was involved in clashes with rival gangs in the 1990s.

Det Ch Insp Sarah Jones of Greater Manchester Police said Mr Marshall was "murdered in cold blood".
