Authorities have arrested a 52-year-old man and are not looking for anyone else in connection with the attack, said Acting Chief Constable Dee Collins of West Yorkshire Police.

Police said they are they not discussing any motive for the shooting in Birstall, which is located in northern England near the city of Leeds. A witness said Cox got involved in a scuffle between two men.

A 77-year-old man was also injured but is expected to survive, police said.

Groups on both sides of the referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union have suspended campaigning. It’s not clear if the shooting was related to next week’s hotly debated referendum, or if Cox was deliberately targeted.
