An investigation has been launched after a car was shot at in Halifax.

Officers were called at 11.59pm to Gibbet Street Monday 20 May to a report a firearm had been discharged at a parked car.

No one was injured and enquiries are ongoing to trace those involved.

“Although no one was injured, it has caused understandable fear in the area.

“I would appeal for anyone with information or anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour to contact police.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who saw a white Jeep-style vehicle driving in the area or anyone who may have been driving in the area and has dash-cam footage.
