Dog walkers could be key witnesses to Bramley firearms incident

Police investigating a firearms discharge which damaged the door of a Bramley house are appealing for dog walkers who may have witnessed the incident to come forward. 

As previously reported by WLD, the incident occurred at about 9.24pm on Monday in Granhamthorpe, but was not reported to police until Wednesday. 

No-one was in the house at the time and the two suspects are believed to have run off towards Bramley Park. 

Police enquiries have now established there were people in the area at the time of the incident and officers are now appealing for those people to come forward. 

Detective Chief Inspector Fiona Gaffney, of the West Yorkshire Police Firearms Prevent and Investigation Team, said:

“We have established that there were a number of people walking their dogs in the area at the time and we are really keen for these people to come forward, as well as anyone else who may have heard or seen something suspicious, as we believe they will be able to assist our investigation.

“The discharge of a firearm is a serious incident and we are continuing to carry out enquiries to establish who was responsible.”
