Man shot in the chest in ‘targeted’ Bradford attack


Police are appealing for information after a man suffered gunshot wounds in an incident in Bradford.

Officers were called to Heaton Road at about 7.26pm on Sunday (July 6) after receiving reports that a man had been shot in the chest.

A 20-year-old man was taken to hospital and remains there today in a stable condition.

Police believe this to be a targeted attack.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Dunkerley, of Protective Services (Crime), said: “We would like to hear from anyone who was in the Heaton Road area in the time leading up to the attack, as they might have seen something which could prove vital to our investigation.

“We would also like to speak to anyone who saw a blue VW Golf car in the area at the time, as it is possible that the attackers might have travelled to and from the scene in this vehicle.

“Reassurance patrols are being conducted in the area today and officers will be on hand to speak to residents with any concerns.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
