POLICE probing a murder bid in Huddersfield town centre have appealed for a man injured in an earlier incident to come forward.

A man was hurt when shots were fired at a car on Cross Church Street at 4am on Saturday, April 22.

The injured man, from Sheffield, suffered a head wound, but was not badly hurt.

Eyewitnesses said at least three shots were fired and two cars sped away from the scene.

Several men - including a 23-year-old from Fartown and eight men from Sheffield - have been arrested in connection with the incident, which police are treating as attempted murder.

All have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

The shooting is believed to have stemmed from an earlier incident inside the Ethos and Visage nightclub complex at Folly Hall.

Police are now appealing for a man attacked in the nightclub at 2.30am that morning to come forward, as he may be an important witness.

A police spokeswoman said of the man: "He was assisted by door staff and taken to the security office for treatment.

"We are appealing for him to come forward, as he may have information that could assist the investigation."

The man is in his early 20s, of mixed race and 5ft 9in tall, with a shaved head.

He was wearing a white T-shirt which was heavily bloodstained, dark blue jeans and white trainers.

The man, or anyone who knows who he is, should contact Huddersfield CID on 01484 436685 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
