Would-be father killed just one month before baby’s due date

Detectives investigating the death of a Bradford man have arrested three men on suspicion of murder.

Imran Khan, whose wife was due to give birth next month, was shot outside his home, on Round Street, West Bowling, on Monday 6th June at around 8pm.

He was taken to hospital but sadly died a short time later as a result of his injuries.

A post mortem, held on Tuesday, showed Mr Khan, who was 30 and from Bradford, died of a gunshot wound.

The ‘targeted’ shooting led detectives to launch a murder investigation with three men from Bradford so far arrested and placed in custody.

A 21, 22 and 30-year-old are being questioned by police on suspicion of murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Scott, of the Homicide and Major Enquiries Team, said: “Our enquiries are continuing to establish the full circumstances of what happened and the events leading up to it.

“A man has sadly lost his life and I would urge anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the Round Street area at around 8pm last night to contact us, so we can fully investigate this incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting log number 1636 of 6/6, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, who can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
