Mother and son (7) shot on doostep
A manhunt was continuing after the shooting of a mother and her son was linked to the murder of a gangland "Mr Big".
The victims, named locally as Jayne Hickey (29), and her son Christian (7), had gone to the door to be confronted by two men.
After a "short" exchange one suspect used a gun to fire three shots, hitting the mother twice in the leg and the boy once at their home in Salford, Manchester.
Bank worker Mrs Hickey and her son are in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
Detectives said the shooting is potentially linked to the murder of security boss Paul Massey (55).
