A man who was critically injured in a shooting which killed his partner has left hospital more than two weeks on.

The 31-year-old was shot in the chest at his home on Ashbourne Road, Bradford, on 30 March. Police said he was "recovering well".

The man's partner Neville Corby, 44, was shot dead in the incident.

Convicted killer Ernest Wright, 67, has been on the run since the shooting and police believe he is still in Bradford after recent early morning sightings.

'Come forward'

West Yorkshire Police said he was believed to be in a "poor state of health and may look dishevelled".

Anyone who sees Wright is urged not to approach him but to call 999 immediately.

Detectives said they were "particularly appealing to early morning workers such as milkmen or postal delivery works who may come into contact with him".

Hundreds of posters bearing Wright's image have been put up in the windows of small businesses and in communal areas.

Det Insp Chris Thompson, who is leading the inquiry, said: "We have had positive sightings of Ernest Wright in the past few days and know he is still in the Bradford area.

"We understand he is in poor health and would ask him to come forward and speak to us.

"He can either do this directly or through a third party such as a solicitor."
