New gun image over Bradford fatal shooting

Jasem Asakerh
Jasem Asakerh died of a single shot to the chest

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of a man in Huddersfield have released a picture showing part of a gun found close to the murder scene.

It comes as police renew their plea for information on the one year anniversary of the death of Jasem Asakerh.

The 28-year-old died when he was shot in the chest as he sat in the back seat of an Audi Q7 car on Brook Street, Thornton Lodge, on 3 April.

Two men arrested on suspicion of murder have been released on bail.

The picture shows a section of a shotgun recovered close to the scene in Brook Street.

Spanish manufacturer

Det Supt Steve Payne said: "The segment of the gun is known as a 'fore end' and would normally clip under the rear portion of the gun's barrels.

"We believe that this detached from the weapon during the firing process.

"Ballistic inquiries have ascertained that the weapon is most likely from a Spanish manufacturer.

"It also bears the digits 584 which should relate to any other part of the gun.

"It is my belief that somebody knows about this weapon, its marking and the location of its other components."

Mr Payne said he hoped the new picture would encourage people to come forward with fresh information.

"This was clearly an extremely serious incident and there maybe a fear of coming forward. I can assure you that any information received is treated in the strictest confidence."
