Suspected gunfire in Huddersfield

    Police are appealing for information following suspected gun shots in the Fartown area of Huddersfield.

    Officers were called at around 11.10pm on Saturday evening (17 March), following a report of gun-shots being heard and damage being caused to a vehicle. No one was injured in the incident.

    A Ford Galaxy has been recovered and taken for forensic examination.

    Detective Inspector Lee Donnelly of Kirklees CID said; “Understandably this may cause concern for those living locally, and the wider community. I would seek to reassure them that this appears to have been an isolated event and is not believed to be linked to any other incidents at this time.

    "We do believe that a weapon has been discharged, however enquiries remain at an early stage. Due to the adverse weather, a scene is in place until it can be processed by specialist officers.

    "There are a number of vehicles within the scene area and we will seek to release these back to their owners as soon as we are able to do so. We appreciate the ongoing patience and support of the local community whilst we continue our enquiries to understand the full circumstances of what has taken place.

    "I would appeal to anyone who was in the area last night and saw or heard anything suspicious or who has any information about what took place to come forward with any information."
