An investigation's started after a man was shot in his stomach at his home in Greater Manchester.
Shortly before 8.40pm on Monday 27 November 2017, police were called to reports that a man had been shot at a house on Glebelands Road in Prestwich. Three men had forced entry and gone through the victim's home, finding him on the stairs where a shotgun was fired at the man. The 49-year-old man made his way into the bedroom, where he then rang for the ambulance service. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment and remains in a serious condition.
Detective Inspector Matthew Moore of GMP's Bury borough, said: "Our team have launched a full investigation to understand why these men broke into the victim's home and shot him. "He has been left with serious injuries and we need to find the people responsible, so they can be held to account for a callous attack on this man in his own home. "Someone will know something about this incident, and we'd urge you to share any information you have with police, even a minor detail could be the key to this investigation."
