Funeral held for shooting victim

Adam Chadwick and daughter Ruby
Mr Chadwick has been described as a "brilliant" father to Ruby

A father-of-one who was shot dead in what police believe was a case of mistaken identity will be buried later.

Adam Chadwick was gunned down at his sister Gemma's house on Clifton Mount, Harehills, Leeds, when three masked men and a woman burst in on 24 June.

The 20-year-old died in hospital two days later from a single bullet wound to the head.

His funeral will be held at 1245 BST at the Church of the Venerable Bede on Stanningley Road.

Members of Mr Chadwick's family are expected to read tributes to him during the service.

He had a daughter Ruby who his family said was the "the apple of his eye".

Blue car

Detectives want to speak to the woman who was with the men on the night of the shooting.

Police said she had been knocking at doors earlier in the evening asking for "Michelle".

Det Supt Steve Payne said: "Inquiries to date lead me to believe this incident was a case of mistaken identity.

"It is vital that we trace this woman as soon as possible."

Officers are also appealing for information about a blue Ford Focus found in the Chapeltown area, close to the site of the former Hayfield pub.

Mr Payne said the vehicle was stolen from the Oatland Heights area of Little London on 11 June.
