Fresh appeal in doorstep killing


Detectives continue appeal in murder of Amran Khan

POLICE are continuing to appeal for witnesses one month after the murder of an Oldham man who was shot on his doorstep.

Father-of-two Amran Khan, 29, died at the Royal Oldham Hospital in the early hours of Saturday 19 September.

He had a wife and two young daughters, aged one and four years old.

Amran was shot on the doorstep of his home on Nugget Street in Glodwick.

Detectives have already charged two people with his murder but are continuing to appeal for witnesses.

They are particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw a BMW being driven erratically at about the time of the shooting to come forward.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Pete Marsh said: “Although we have charged two people, we believe other people were involved in this incident and our inquiries are still ongoing and we are continuing to do everything we can to find out what happened on the night Amran was killed.

Twins Brett Francis, 26, and Jordan Francis have both been charged with Amran’s murder and are awaiting trial.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Incident Room on 0161 856 4711 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
