A MAN is in hospital after being shot in Huddersfield.
The 22-year-old from Brackenhall suffered leg wounds in a drive-by shooting in the town centre.
He was a passenger in a car which was waiting at traffic lights when another car carrying the gunman pulled up alongside.
Two other people in the victim's car escaped injury.
Detectives today said that a 27-year-old Fartown man has been arrested and is being questioned in relation to the incident.
But they have made an appeal for help in finding witnesses and in tracing the car used by the gunman.
The drama happened at 2.15am on Sunday morning but details were released only today.
Det Insp Steve Hepplestone said: "This was very much a targeted attack, with the victim singled out. There was no risk to the public in general."
The victim was a front-seat passenger in a black Alfa Romeo which was at traffic lights in Southgate, waiting to pull into Kirkgate.
A red hatchback, possibly a Honda Civic, drew alongside and a man shot at the black car, with what police believe was a handgun.
The injured man was shot in the leg and is now in hospital. Two other people in the car have not been traced.
Police believe the red car was seen minutes earlier close to the Rhythms in Indigo nightclub in Northumberland Street.
They want to hear from anyone who was near the club or who has seen the car since Sunday's attack.
