Antony Cook was shot in a car.

He had been a passenger in a VW car that was being chased through Manchester city centre. The driver of the car turned into Kincardine Street where he then crashed into the back of another car and then hit a lamppost.

After the VW car came to a halt the other car pulled up beside it and a man got out and went up to the VW car and shot Antony Cook seven times in the head and chest. He then shot the driver three times in the stomach.

The driver managed to get out of the car and then approach the couple that had been in the car that he hit and said to them 'Help me, I've been shot.'. The driver was taken to hospital where he was place under police protection and later recovered.

Antony Cook was found dead in the car.
