Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood said: “It is now five weeks since David Short was tragically killed in a shooting and grenade attack at his home in Clayton and our investigation remains very much ongoing.
“We have not relented in our high profile policing operation and have so far arrested seven people in connection with our inquiries and are continuing to look for Dale Cregan.
“We continue to have armed officers on patrol in the Droylsden and Clayton areas and this weekend, we will be publicising Dales photo and the £50,000 reward offer at football matches around the country.
“My officers have been paying regular visits each day to all of Dale Cregans family members, friends and associates and these visits will carry on until Dale is found.
“If Dale wants to take control of this situation and hand himself into police, then we encourage him to do so by speaking to a family member, friend, or his solicitor, where he can arrange to come into a police station and speak to us.”
