A man's been killed and another seriously injured after a double shooting at a house in the Wortley area of Leeds.

Police were called at around 5:30pm yesterday afternoon (Friday 8th November) to a house on Blue Hill Crescent.

Two men aged 21 and 31 were found with serious injuries - that look to have been caused by a gun.

Both were taken to hospital, however; the 21 year old man died a short time later.

The 31 year old man is currently receiving treatment for serious injuries to his lower body.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Superintendent Simon Beldon said:
"At this time, our investigations are at a very early stage and forensic examinations are taking place at the scene.

We believe that the shots were fired inside the property, however; enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.

The nature of this incident suggests it was a targeted and isolated attack and a team of detectives are currently working hard to quickly identify those responsible for this serious crime. 

Neighbourhood Policing Team Officers are also patrolling the local area, speaking to residents and responding to any concerns they may have.

I would ask that any witnesses or anyone with information contact us immediately on the non emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
