Polish man killed in Leeds double shooting
Police urge anyone with information to come forward
Police have appealed for witnesses after a Polish national died in a double shooting in Leeds.
The 21-year-old was shot along with another man, 31, in the Wortley area, in the west of the city.
Police said they believed it was not a random attack, and that suspects gathered outside a house on Blue Hill Crescent before the shooting, at around 5.30pm on Friday.
They also said the 31-year-old - who was shot in the lower body - was in a stable condition in hospital.
Detective Superintendent Simon Beldon said: “The investigation of this murder is a top priority for West Yorkshire Police and I want to reassure residents that all necessary resources are being deployed to locate those responsible.
“We are working to build up a picture of what took place and are conducting a wide range of specialist inquiries including a painstaking forensic search of the murder scene.”
He added: “The investigation remains in its early stages but we do wish to stress again we believe this was targeted and not a random attack.
“I continue to appeal for witnesses. Did you see unusual behaviour inside or outside the house shortly before 5.30pm or any vehicles parked up which you have not noticed before?
“The smallest clue could be vital and I would ask anyone who has information to contact us immediately on the non emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
