Four men shot in "targeted attack" in Huddersfield

Four men have been shot in the legs in what detectives say was a targeted attack in Huddersfield.

A masked man went to an address on St Stephens Road at about 02:30 BST and fired a gun twice before escaping, West Yorkshire Police said.

Four men aged 18, 24, 25 and 26 were injured. Police said three of the men have been arrested in connection with the incident.

Det Supt Scott Wood said it was a "targeted and isolated attack".

The 24-year-old suffered a serious leg injury and was taken to hospital for surgery. The 25-year-old was also taken to hospital but later released, police said.

The other two men did not need hospital treatment.

The 18-year-old, 25-year-old and 26-year-old were arrested and are in custody.
