An eyewitness has told how he heard screaming in the street before MP Jo Cox was shot.
Shop owner Hichem Ben Abdallah, aged 56, said he was in the café next door to the library, where Ms Cox was reportedly preparing to hold an advice surgery, shortly after 1pm when he heard screaming.
He went outside, he told the Press Association, and saw two men scuffling.
"There was a guy who was being very brave and another guy with a white baseball cap who he was trying to control, and the man in the baseball cap suddenly pulled a gun from his bag," he said.
After a brief tussle, the man stepped back and Ms Cox became involved, he said.
"He was fighting with her and wrestling with her and then the gun went off twice and then she fell between two cars and I came and saw her bleeding on the floor," he added.
"He was kicking her and he was pulling her by her hair. A very courageous man from the dry cleaners tried to restrain him and he couldn't stop him because all of a sudden he pulled a gun.
"She was a standing still target for him when he shot her."
He said emergency services took around 15 minutes to arrive on the scene.
Fundraising page set up by the MP's family hits the landmark total as thousands donate to good causes in her memory.
The MP had also recorded a video about Islamophobia in Yorkshire - described as a 'hotbed of far-right activity', according to The Times.
Emotional tributes have been paid to Jo Cox tonight as vigils were held around the UK in honour of the murdered MP.
