The investigation of this murder is a top priority for West Yorkshire Police and I want to reassure residents that all necessary resources are being deployed to locate those responsible. We are working to build up a picture of what took place and are conducting a wide range of specialist enquiries including painstaking forensic search of the murder scene. We believe this was a targeted attack and not a random attack. Incident of this sort are very unusual for the Wortley area. We have a number of reassurance patrols ongoing by Neighbourhood Policing Officers.
