Woman shot in head with gun pellet in Didsbury

A woman has been left with a gun pellet lodged in the base of her skull after she was shot in a Didsbury car park.

The 54-year-old hotel worker was outside the Waterside Hotel on Wilmslow Road during her break on 16 April when she was hit.

The woman was taken to hospital and has made a full recovery although it has not been possible to remove the pellet, said police.

Officers said it is not known what weapon was used.

Det Con Lucy Barnes of Greater Manchester Police said: "We don't know whether the woman was deliberately shot at or was the victim of someone recklessly firing the weapon indiscriminately."
