Detectives from West Yorkshire Police have arrested two 17-year-old males in connection with the attempted murder of a 12-year-old boy in Deighton.
Police also confirmed that a 55-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
The arrests come following a shooting that took place at the Northfield Hall Community Centre on Norfolk Avenue, Deighton on Tuesday 10th March 2020.
All three suspects have been bailed pending further police enquiries.
Detective Chief Inspector Vanessa Rolfe, who is leading the investigation, said:
“This is a continually developing investigation, and it remains crucial that we hear from anyone in the community who can assist us in our ongoing enquiries.
“If you have not spoken out and have information that could progress what is a constantly evolving situation, I would urge you to get in touch immediately.
“This was an extremely young victim, and any outstanding witnesses should consider the absolute importance of coming forward and what it represents.
“All reports made to us will be treated and handled sensitively.
“Information can also separately be given in complete anonymity to the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
“Likewise, information can also be given online and direct to investigators through the Major Incident Public Portal here .”
