Footage reportedly showing the aftermath of the incident was posted on social media.

The video appears to show a panicked group of people being helped by police.

As a voice cries out, shouts of “move” can be heard, while another voice asks “can you hear me”.

A number of people were in the area following the Caribbean Carnival, which had finished some hours before, the force added.

Detective Superintendent Debbie Dooley said: “We currently have a number of people in hospital all being treated for different injuries but thankfully most do not appear to be life-threatening at this time.

“Officers are trying to establish exactly where this incident took place and who is responsible for such a dangerous attack.

“Those living or visiting the area will understandably be concerned by this incident and we will have extra officers patrolling the area throughout the morning and into the coming days.”

GMP said it had deployed a “large number” of armed and unarmed officers in the area after the alarm was raised.

Investigations were taking place to identify exactly where the shooting happened and who was involved.
