West Yorkshire Police have appealed to gunman James Leslie to hand himself in after he went on the run following a shooting which left a female police officer seriously injured.
” We are appealing to Mr Leslie to hand himself in as soon as possible,” said a West Yorkshire Police spokesman.
“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.”
Police launched a manhunt for 37-year-old Leslie after he allegedly opened fire on two uniformed police officers who had called at an address in Cardigan Road in the Hyde Park area of the city just after 4am today, to investigate reports of a disturbance.
A female officer received serious but non life threatening injuries, a male officer, was uninjured. The female officer is currently undergoing treatment in hospital.
