Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was found shot dead in woods in Leeds.

The 31 year old was found by two teenage schoolboys in woodland in Chapel Allerton.

Detectives are trying to find the cause of death, but confirmed he had been shot.

They also believe this was a targeted attack.

Detective Superintendent Simon Beldon said: “A key focus for the investigation at the moment is on tracing any potential witnesses who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area.

"The man had received injuries consistent with a firearm having been discharged.

“We are therefore particularly keen to hear from anyone who heard a bang or who saw anyone or any vehicles in the vicinity that could be linked to the incident.

“Our inquiries are at an early stage but it appears that this has been a targeted attack.

"Although this incident will understandably shock people in the community we don't believe there is any wider risk to the general public."
