Dramatic CCTV footage has been released of the moment three men launched a gun and knife attack outside a Leeds nightclub earlier this year.

The 42-year-old victim sustained knife wounds and a gunshot wound to the chest after a sawn-off shotgun was fired at him outside the Nite Trax club in Chapeltown August 29 at around 1am.

The area was busy with people celebrating the Leeds West Indian Carnival when the incident happened, which also left a woman with knife wounds.

This was an absolutely appallingly violent attack and it is only by sheer chance that the victim was not killed.

– Detective Chief Inspector Jim Griffiths, West Yorkshire Police

Shaquille Liddie, 24, from Leeds, was identified as having been the gunman and pleaded guilty to attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Kemar Ricketts, 29, and Seion Allen, 33, both from Leeds, were found guilty of attempted murder following a trial last week.

They were each jailed for 19 years at Leeds Crown Court today. Liddie was jailed for 14 years.
