LONDON – Britain's Press Association reports Labour lawmaker Jo Cox has been injured in a shooting near Leeds.
The PA was quoting eyewitness Hithem Ben Abdallah as saying Cox got involved in a scuffle between two men in the village of Birstall on Thursday. Abdallah said one of the men was fighting with Cox and then a gun went off twice and "she fell between two cars and I came and saw her bleeding on the floor."
After around 15 minutes, the shop owner said emergency services arrived and tended to her with a drip.
Police say a "serious incident" has taken place, but didn't immediately identify the victim or provide any more details.
Cox's assistant confirmed to the PA she had been attacked.
