A man has been killed in a shooting at a food store in Manchester.

The victim, who is believed to be 35 and has not been named, was found with two wounds at Manchester Food Traders in Wood Street, Openshaw.

He was taken to hospital shortly before 18:30 GMT on Friday with injuries to his abdomen and chest but died later.

Police have started a murder investigation and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Det Supt Jon Chadwick said it was "far too early to speculate about what has happened and why".

"All we can say for certain is that a man has tragically died after being shot and his family are absolutely devastated," he said.
