Now, I don't know if the video will lead directly to the identification of the perpetrators, but if they are arrested, it will help establish exactly what happened, how many shots were fired, when it occurred, and what type of vehicle they were driving. In the absence of any witnesses, this will prove very helpful.
Here's the other particulars that were issued with the footage:
- The attack took place on Leonard Street on Sunday at 9:45pm.
- The residents of the house were a 70-year-old man and his wife, who were watching television at the time.
- Several shots were fired and a window was smashed in the attack but nobody was injured.
- CCTV from the street shows a motorcycle stopping outside the house.
- The pillion passenger is seen to approach the house and fire a gun, before jumping back on the motorbike, which sped off.
- Police are appealing for anyone with information about the identity of the gunmen to call them on 0161 856 1722 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
