Two men have appeared in court over the death of a man in Leeds.

Shuel Ali Hussain, 33, was shot in the stomach on Markham Avenue in Harehills at about 21:00 GMT on 9 March.

Yakub Miah, 41, of Hilltop Avenue and Mohammed Nadeem Ahmed, 42, of Airlie Avenue, were the fifth and sixth men to be charged in connection with the incident.

They were granted conditional bail and are due at Leeds Crown Court on 30 March.

Mr Miah was charged with two drugs offences, assisting an offender and attempting to pervert the course of justice, while Mr Ahmed was charged with assisting an offender.

On Friday, 19-year-old Masum Ahmed, of Airlie Avenue, 20-year-old Rajak Miah and a 17-year-old from Harehills - who cannot be named because of his age - were charged with conspiracy to murder.

A 16-year-old from Chapeltown, who must also remain nameless, is charged with conspiracy to murder and possessing ammunition.

The four were remanded in custody and are due to appear at Leeds Crown Court on Tuesday.

A 15-year-old boy from Harehills has been released without charge.

West Yorkshire Police said Mr Hussain, who was from Harehills, was parked in his silver Vauxhall Astra on Pasture Road when he was shot.

He made his way to a supermarket on nearby Markham Avenue but died later in hospital.

A post-mortem examination showed he died as a result of a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Det Supt Simon Atkinson said he was appealing for witnesses to the murder.
