Two more charged over man’s shooting

TWO more men have been charged over a February 1 shooting on a secluded part of Dewsbury's Cemetery Road, between St Paulinus School field and the private Muslim burial ground.

On Wednesday, Ibrahim Malik, 19, of Headfield Road, Savile Town, was charged at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court with conspiracy to murder. On Thursday, a 17-year-old youth who cannot be named was charged with attempted murder, robbery and attempted robbery.

In the attack, a 24-year-old man was approached by four males from a parked VW Golf. He was shot in the chest and as he drove away another shot was fired at his car, but he managed to reach a house in Westtown.

The court was told the gang then attempted to hijack a Honda, but after that failed successfully hijacked a Peugeot, stealing a mobile phone, wallet and cash worth over £8,000. The car was later found burnt out.

Hasnain Owen and Owais Asfaq have already faced the same conspiracy to murder charge. The four have all been remanded to appear at Leeds Crown Court on March 22.
