Residents speak of fears after shots fired in Shipley streets

RESIDENTS have spoken of their fears after two family homes on quiet residential streets were targeted by gunmen, as a second man was arrested last night. 
No-one was injured in the shootings, which happened within a few minutes in Windhill,Shipley, but damage was caused.
One woman, living close to one of the incidents, said she would be going away for a few days and then looking to move out of the area because she was scared.
Police are hunting two masked men on a motorbike after shots were fired in Marlott Road and West Royd Avenue, which are only a few hundred yards apart.
Detectives are linking the shootings.
A 35-year-old Dewsbury man was arrested last night on suspicion of possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
A second man, a 28-year-old from Shipley, was arrested yesterday on the same charge.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman confirmed the arrests and both remain in police custody today with investigations continuing. 
Both scenes were under police guard yesterday, with a 50 yard section of West Royd Avenue cordoned off at both ends. Inside the cordon was a pebbledash end terraced house with the front window and glass panel above the front door boarded up. Shattered glass could be seen in front of the window, next to a number of children’s toys.
A neighbour said she had been in bed on Tuesday evening when she heard two bangs.
She said: “I thought it was fireworks but now I know it was gunfire by some people on a bike.
“I feel scared. I have sent my son to stay with his dad and I am going to go away for a few days.”
The woman, who was too frightened to be identified, said there had been another incident on Sunday night when windows at the house were put through.
She added: “It was nothing like this. It’s disgusting and scary. I have lived here for a couple of months and I wasn’t expecting anything like this.
“A few people on the street have put in for a move away and I am going to do the same.
