He pleaded for his life as the gunman, in a balaclava and holding what appears to be a sawn-off shotgun, fired twice.

The thug ran off when neighbours came rushing to the businessman’s aid.

"I feel so sorry for him and hope he pulls through.

“But he lost a lot of blood, which is staining the pavement.”

Det Insp Andy Farrell, of West Yorkshire Police, said: “We believe it was a targeted attack.”
