A man who was killed in a shooting in Leeds has been named by police.

Shuel Ali Hussain, 33, was found with gunshot injuries in Markham Avenue in Harehills at about 21:00 GMT on Monday. He died later at Leeds General Infirmary.

Police said he was shot in his silver Vauxhall Astra on Pasture Road, before he managed to make his way to a supermarket on nearby Markham Avenue.

Five people have been arrested in connection with his death.

A 17-year-old boy and two men, aged 20 and 19, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.

Two boys aged 15 and 16 were detained on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

A post-mortem examination showed Mr Hussain, from Harehills, died as a result of a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Det Ch Insp Steve Snow, of West Yorkshire Police, said Mr Hussain's family were "understandably devastated at losing him in such sudden and violent circumstances".

"The investigation remains ongoing and we are continuing to search a number of addresses in Harehills and examine a number of scenes in the area of the incident," the detective said.

"Mr Hussain was shot in his silver Vauxhall Astra, which was parked in Pasture Road near to the junction with Back Airlie Avenue, and then managed to make his way to the Faizan Khan Supermarket in Markham Avenue, from where the emergency services were contacted."

Det Ch Insp Snow previously said the force believed it was a targeted shooting.

The force has appealed for any witnesses to come forward.
