A 16-year-old girl was shot in the leg outside a house party in Manchester.

The anonymous adolescent was rushed to the hospital with an injury believed to have been caused by the firing of a firearm during the attack and is in stable condition.

The incident happened just before 10.30 p.m. on Friday on Quinney Crescent in Moss Side.

The girl was not the intended target of the shooting, according to Greater Manchester Police.

Officers are accompanying the youngster as she recovers at the hospital, and her injuries are not believed to be significant.

“Inquiries are underway at a rapid pace to establish the cause of the incident and, ultimately, the people responsible,” the force said in a statement.

“An extensive cordon is in place as we continue to investigate the scene, and we thank the local community for their cooperation while this takes place.”

“My thoughts are with the victim whose physical injuries are thankfully not serious and she is able to talk to our officers in hospital, but that does not diminish what could’ve happened here as incidents of this nature are always reckless, serious, and risk lives being lost,” said Chief Superintendent Robert Cousen, commander of the City of Manchester division.

“We’re doing all we can to unpick the circumstances of this incident and to ensure that whoever is responsible is caught and brought to justice.”
