A MAN was shot twice in a mystery attack on a quiet residential road.
The shooting followed a crash between two cars - but police have described it as "a targeted attack."
They have spoken to the victim who was shot twice in the left leg, but the motive for the shooting still remains unclear.
The drama happened at 11.40pm on Sunday at Greenfields in Heckmondwike.
The crash involved a silver VW Golf and a black Mercedes.
The Mercedes driver, a 33-year-old man from Heckmondwike, got out of his car to talk to the other driver.
As he turned to get back into his car he was shot in the leg.
The Golf - possibly V-registered - was then reversed up Greenfields and on to Nunroyd before being driven off towards the centre of Heckmondwike.
The victim is in a stable condition in hospital.
There are thought to have been two people in the Golf.
The driver was described as a slim African-Caribbean man, aged 20 to 30.
Det Supt Phil Sedgewick, of West Yorkshire Police's Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: "We are currently looking for a motive for this attack. We will be continuing with house-to-house inquiries in the area and are also concentrating our efforts with forensic work on items found at the scene.
"We are appealing for witnesses - if anyone saw the silver Golf, or has any information that could help our inquiry, then please get in touch."
