A 20-year-old man will appear in court tomorrow charged with murdering a shop worker who was shot six times.

Nasar Hussain, 30, died from wounds to his chest and stomach after being blasted as he worked at the Brookhouse Wines supermarket in Salford, Greater Manchester, on Saturday July 4.

Ryan Manning, of Bird Street, Higher Ince, Wigan, will appear at Manchester Magistrates Court accused of murder.

Greater Manchester Police said a 17-year-old boy was arrested yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder and remained in police custody.

Nine other men and two women also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder have been bailed until August 17 pending further inquiries.

Mr Hussain was treated at his shop by police and paramedics before being taken to hospital, but doctors could not save his life.

He was a Pakistani national known locally as Nasar Shazad, and had lived in Salford for about six months before the attack.
