A MAN wanted over an “execution” could be anywhere in West Yorkshire.
Detectives last night stepped up their hunt for Ernest Wright, wanted in connection with a brutal murder in Bradford earlier this week.
They insisted Wright, a convicted murderer, could still be in West Yorkshire and urged people not to approach him.
Wright, 67, is being sought in connection with the death of Neville Corby, 44, and the shooting of a second man, aged 31.
The crime happened in North Bradford and a senior detective described it as “merciless”.
Det Supt Chris Thompson, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a brutal, merciless, execution style killing, all the more shocking as it occurred in residential street at the time children were going to school.
“I would again appeal to anyone with any information regarding this incident to contact the police as a matter of urgency.”
Two people, a 32-year-old man and a 33-year-old-woman, arrested by Police in connection with the incident have now been bailed pending further enquiries.
More than 120 officers including dedicated homicide detectives and specialist officers continue to work around the clock on the inquiry.
