Updated: Dec 4, 11:38 a.m. GMT: Police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting of a woman police officer in Leeds.
A 37-year-old man was arrested at 10:10am on Wood Lane in the Headingley area of the city and a firearm was recovered.
Two uniformed officers were attending a routine call to a disturbance shortly after 4am on Wednesday, when they were confronted by a man who fired at them.
One female officer received serious but non life-threatening injuries. A male officer was uninjured.
Assistant Chief Constable Geoff Dodd told Sky News the investigation was “still at an early stage”, and a police presence would remain in the area.
The officer has sustained a very serious injury and her wellbeing is of paramount importance to us. The thoughts of colleagues remain with the officer and her family at this very difficult time.
