A MAN was arrested by armed police after an early-hours shooting in Deighton.
The 28-year-old was detained after the front door of a house in Glenfield Avenue was blasted by a shotgun.
A 22-year-old man who was in the house was slightly hurt and is thought to have been injured by flying glass.
He was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for treatment.
The incident happened about 3.30am on Saturday but police released no details until yesterday.
They confirmed armed police had been brought in to help investigate the shooting.
Other residents who live in the street said police had cordoned off a section of the gardens.
One neighbour said: “There were police officers at the house from the early hours of Saturday.
“We wondered what was going on but then heard there had been a shooting.
“Some officers did call at houses on either side of the one where the incident happened but they did not go further down the street”.
The inquiry is being led by officers from West Yorkshire Police’s homicide and major enquiry team.
A spokesman said: “The man taken to hospital was not badly hurt.
“Police arrested a man very shortly after the incident and he has been remanded into custody by magistrates.
“He will appear at Leeds Crown Court on December 6 to face charges of Section 18 wounding and possession of a shotgun”.
They have confirmed no-one else is being sought in connection with the incident.
