Four further arrests have been made after a footballer's brother was shot outside a barbers in Leeds.

Raheem Wilks, the 19-year-old brother of Leeds United's Mallik Wilks, was attacked near Too Sharps on Gathorne Terrace, Harehills, on 26 January.

A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, while two men aged 28 and one aged 30 are being held on suspicion of assisting an offender. 

All four remain in custody for questioning.

Jaydn Manners, 23, of Louis Street, Chapeltown, and Keal Richards, 21, of Francis Street, Chapeltown, have both been remanded in custody charged with murder.

A 31-year-old woman arrested in Castleford on suspicion of conspiracy to murder has been released on bail.

Police were called to the street at 13:20 GMT and found Mr Wilks seriously injured. He was taken to hospital but was later confirmed dead.

A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Wilks died as a result of a single gunshot wound to the chest.
