Salford car shooting: Arrest after father and son hurt
A man has been arrested after a father was shot while in a car with his son.
The victim, 36, was waiting at traffic lights in Salford in the early hours of Tuesday when a motorcyclist pulled up and a pillion rider fired a shot.
The offenders fled the scene on Langworthy Road after what police believe was a targeted attack.
Despite being hit in the shoulder, the victim was able to drive to hospital, where he is recovering. His 11-year-old son suffered minor injuries.
A 29-year-old man was arrested in Salford on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. He has been released under investigation.
Police said their inquiries suggested a link to a shooting on Howard Street on 6 February. Nobody was injured on that occasion.
Officers have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
