Police have named the man they want in connection with the shooting of a female police officer in Leeds.

West Yorkshire Police have launched a manhunt for 37 year old James Leslie, after an officer was shot at on Cardigan Road in the Hyde Park area.

They want to trace him after he allegedly opened fire on two police officers when they were called to a disturbance.

The female officer received serious but non-life-threatening injuries. A male officer was uninjured. The female officer is currently undergoing treatment in hospital.

West Yorkshire Police have appealed to gunman James Leslie to hand himself in. 

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman has told Capital, "The Police are actively seeking Mr Leslie and the public should be reassured that every effort is being made to safely locate him. Additional patrols will be seen in the area.

"The public should not approach Mr Leslie but ring 999, if they see him or know where he may be."
