An independent investigation will be carried out into the events that led up to a man being shot during a police raid in Bradford.

A 49-year-old man died at his home in Buckingham Crescent in the Clayton area yesterday (Thursday). Unarmed officers from West Yorkshire Police were at the house to execute a drugs warrant.

An Independent Police Complaints Commission investigator was deployed to the scene following a referral from the force. The IPCC is also liaising with members of the decr=eased man’s family. He has yet to be formally identified.

A post mortem examination was due to be held today.
