Attempted murder and firearms charges have been dropped against a man who had been charged in connection with a shooting outside a Leeds nightclub.

Toyan Seabrooks-Issac, 29, had been facing charges in relation to the shooting of a 42-year-old man who was seriously injured in the incident outside Nitetrax nightclub, Chapeltown Road, in the early hours of Monday, August 29.

Mr Seabrooks-Issac, of Stonegate Place, Meanwood, had been charged with attempted murder, having a firearm with intent to commit murder and possessing a firearm and ammunition without authority.

Prosecutor Mark McKone told Leeds Crown Court that no further evidence was to be offered in the case against Mr Seabrooks-Issac and asked that formal not guilty verdicts be entered in relation to each charge.

Mr McKone said: “The police have put a lot of time and resources in to this investigation and are now quite satisfied that it was not this defendant who committed these offences.”
