A gun was fired at a house in Bramley – with two suspects running off towards Bramley Park, police have said.

At 3.24pm yesterday, police received a report of damage having been discovered to the front door of an address in Granhamthorpe.

Damage to the door was confirmed as being consistent with a firearm discharge.

Enquiries indicated this had occurred at 9.24pm on Monday (16 August, 2021) involving two suspects. No-one was in the property at the time.

A scene has been put in place to undergo forensic examination and specialist searches, and enquiries are ongoing.

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

“We treat all incidents involving firearms very seriously, and have specialist detectives carrying out extensive enquiries to establish the full circumstances to identify those responsible.

“Although the damage was only discovered yesterday, the discharge appears to have happened on Monday night and we would like to hear from anyone who witnessed anything at the time or saw the suspects leaving the scene.

“We appreciate that a serious incident such as this will cause understandable concern in the community and we are working closely with our colleagues at Leeds District to provide suitable reassurance.”
