PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Tackling gun crime is one of Greater Manchester Police's top priorities, ever since the dark days of the 1990s when the city earned the infamous nickname 'Gunchester'. And while huge progress has been made in curbing the supply of firearms and cracking down on gangs, disputes in the criminal underworld can still explode in gun violence, with potentially deadly consequences for innocent bystanders. Over the last 12 months Greater Manchester's courts have heard a series of cases involving shootings on the streets. And the reasons behind them ranged from gangland feuds to jealousy.

A family of eight were yards away as four to five shots were fired from a passing Mercedes. Two men were blasted in the legs and seriously hurt in Cheetham Hill on a busy Friday afternoon. The pair were 'lured' out of the Godfather café off Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester Crown Court heard. Three men faced trial in relation to the shooting. Hazhar Anwar, 29, and Danyal Ahmed, 24, were convicted of two counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. Ahsan Shabbir, 20, was acquitted of the same two charges. Anwar, Ahmed and Shabbir were also accused of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life. Anwar was found guilty, Shabbir was acquitted and jurors could not reach a verdict in Ahmed's case. Prosecutors alleged that the gunman is Mr Shabbir's brother, named in court as Faizan Shabbir. "The offence bore the hallmarks of gang rivalry, and this was an attempt to cause serious injury to others," prosecutor Alaric Bassano told jurors. Sentencing is due to be held at a later date. Innocent member of the public caught up in drive-by shooting Sean Cowie, Dean Urey and Paul Ryan Hanging out of a BMW, gun-toting Sean Cowie fired a handgun twice on a Tuesday afternoon in Newton Heath. A member of the public was caught up in the shocking incident, their car hit by a stray bullet. Detectives said someone could easily have been killed, as petty feuds spilled out onto the street. David Urey, 39, was behind the wheel of the BMW which was chasing a VW Golf. He and Cowie, 32, were then followed by Paul Ryan, 42 who was in another VW Golf. The chase continued along Droylsden Road towards Ashton before the three cars split up. "Somebody quite easily could have been killed on that day," Detective Inspector Claire Moss told the Manchester Evening News . "An innocent member of the public who was on his way home from work has had his vehicle hit. "There were people wandering around on the streets. Bullets could have ricocheted off anything, they could have hit anybody." Minshull Street Crown Court heard the shooting came as part of an ongoing dispute between two gangs, and was committed in retaliation after those in the Golf they chased had ‘very badly beaten up’ a friend of theirs. Cowie, of Hardman Lane, Failsworth; Urey, of Ten Acres Lane, Newton Heath; and Ryan, of Ashton Road East, Failsworth; all pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, and Ryan pleaded guilty to a separate offence of possession of a prohibited firearm. Cowie was jailed for five years and seven months, Urey for five years and four months and Ryan was sentenced to six-and-a-half years. "He's got a f****** gun"...

De Falco's girlfriend Lucy Flux was an ex-partner of the victim, and in the weeks before the shooting she and the victim had been texting.
