Arrests After Firearms Discharge In Bradford

31st January 2018

Police investigating a firearms discharge in Bradford have arrested two men.

The men aged 22 and 20 have been arrested in connection with an incident at a house in Fenby Avenue late last Wednesday (24 January), where a window was found to have damage consistent with the use of a firearm.

Both men remain in custody today while enquiries are continuing.

Detective Inspector Andy Farrell, of the Firearms Prevent Team, said: "Our enquiries suggest that a car found burnt out in Brompton Road is linked to the discharge and we are keen to hear from anyone who saw this vehicle - a light blue Volkswagen Golf - in the area earlier that evening.

"We would also like to hear from anyone who may have seen two males acting suspiciously in the Brompton Road area at around 9pm.

"We continue to believe this was a targeted attack on a property and anyone who can assist this investigation is asked to contact the Firearms Prevent Team on 101, quoting log 1978 of 24 January."

Information can also be reported anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
