VIDEO: Crime scene where man was shot dead in planned police operation on M62

Video footage showing the crime scene where a man was shot dead by police during a planned operation on the M62 in Huddersfield.

Mohammed Yasser Yaqub, 28, was shot dead through his windscreen when armed police stormed his white Audi on a slip road off the busy motorway on Monday night.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) have launched an investigation into the shooting.

Mr Yaqub’s family lawyer released a statement saying: “Mr Yaqub’s family are in shock and are distraught.

“They would ask the media to respect their privacy at this difficult time.

“The family are fully aware that the incident that led to the death of Mr Yaqub is currently being investigated by the IPCC and they do not wish to make any further comment at this stage.”

Police said the incident was “related to information received about criminal possession of a firearm” and was not terror related.

There were five arrests – three at the scene and two in a simultaneous “related stop” of another vehicle in Bradford, police said.

IPCC investigators said “what appears to be a non-police issue firearm” was found in Yaqub’s vehicle after he was shot.

A postmortem examination is due to take place later today and the coroner has been informed, the watchdog said.

IPCC commissioner Derrick Campbell added: “My thoughts are with Mr Yaqub’s family and all those affected at this difficult time. Though in its early stages, this investigation is making good progress but will be complex. We will be working hard to establish exactly what happened and would ask for patience while our investigation continues.”
