Two men arrested over shooting of Whitefield man
TWO men have been quizzed on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with the shooting of a Whitefield man.
Neil Hazelwood, aged 28, was found in a wooded area near Huddersfield on September 8 suffering from gunshot wounds.
He is in a stable condition in hospital under armed guard.
Detectives are investigating a theory that Mr Hazelwood might have been kidnapped from the street near to his home on the Hillock estate, and have appealed for information about any people acting suspiciously or unfamiliar vehicles seen in the area of Stanway Road on the morning of Sunday September 8.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Two men from Derbyshire have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
“Our officers are continuing to work with West Yorkshire as part of the ongoing investigation.”
