Shooting Incident Charlton Road, Leeds 13/09/2020
Detectives investigating the attempted murder of a man in a shooting in Leeds are appealing for information after a car believed to be involved was found.
At 11:30pm last night (13/9) police received a report of a car having been set on fire in Well Close Rise, Little London, and a number of males seen running off.
Firefighters attended and put out the fire and a large scene was put in place due to the blue Nissan Juke being thought to be the one involved in the shooting of a 21-year-old man in Charlton Road, East End Park, shortly after 1pm the same day.
The scene is due to undergo forensic examination and specialist searches as part of the ongoing investigation.
The victim remains in hospital with serious leg injuries.
Detective Chief Inspector Vanessa Rolfe, of West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “The criminal use of firearms on our streets is completely unacceptable and we are continuing to carry out extensive enquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the targeted shooting of this man, and to identify and arrest those responsible.
“We would still like to hear from anyone who witnessed the shooting itself in Charlton Road or who has seen the blue Nissan Juke being abandoned and set alight in Well Close Rise or the males running off from the scene.”
