Two men have been charged with attempted murder following the shooting in Hattersley last Saturday night.

Aaron Ward, 26, and Kadrell Ward, 18, both of Hattersley Road West have been charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

They’ve been remanded in custody and are set to appear before Manchester Magistrates Court today (Wednesday 21 November).

On around 8:20pm on Saturday evening police were called to reports that a man had been shot outside a pub on Hattersley Road West.

The victim – a 35-year-old man – later presented himself at hospital where he continues to be treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his stomach. 

A third man, who was arrested in the Blackburn area on Monday night (19 November 2018) on suspicion of assisting an offender, has been bailed pending further enquiries.
