TWO gunmen have been jailed for 16 years after firing shots at a car in Ravensthorpe.
Michael Bowman and Mark Lennon were both cleared of attempted murder but convicted of firearms offences.
Bowman, 44, of no fixed address, and Lennon, 40, of Queenstown Road, London were each found guilty by a jury at Leeds Crown Court of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life, ammunition without a firearms certificate and possessing a prohibited weapon.
The two men travelled from London to West Yorkshire to the home of Mohammed Aslam in Clarkson Street, Ravensthorpe on June 10.
Aslam is facing trial next year accused of conspiracy in relation to heroin importation and it was believed the crimes were linked to the alleged drugs trade.
Shots were fired at a man in a car but no-one was hurt.
Judge Peter Collier QC said: “You both clearly belong to that group of criminals who give no second thought to carrying guns when engaged in crime. That I view very seriously indeed.”
