Huddersfield shooting leaves man critical

A man is in a critical condition after he was shot in the head in what police said was a targeted attack.

The 31-year-old was shot at 21:30 GMT on Tuesday while he was in a car on Springwood Avenue in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire Police said.

Two men, aged 35 and 24, have been arrested in connection with the shooting, which detectives are treating as attempted murder.

Two cars believed to be involved were found in Huddersfield and Slaithwaite.

Det Ch Insp Adrian Taylor said: "It appears that the victim was specifically targeted in what is an isolated incident.

"I want to know if anyone remembers seeing a mini or a VW Golf travelling at high speed in and around the centre of Huddersfield on Tuesday night."
