Police are hunting a known gang member who is wanted on recall to prison.
Tyler Mullings, aged 22, of Wood Street, Bury, was convicted of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life following a shooting in February 2007 on Wilcock Street.
In 2009, he was jailed for six years.
He was released on license but in June 2012 was charged with possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply, and recalled to prison for breaching his license conditions.
However, he is currently on the run and has been circulated as wanted.
Police are appealing to anyone who knows his whereabouts to call police immediately. Anyone who sees Mullings should not approach him but call police straight away on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
