An 18-year-old man is in police custody for questioning on suspicion of attempted murder and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.
Four men have previously been charged in connection with Javell’s death.
The 20-year-old sadly died in hospital after being found with serious injuries on Claremont Road in the early hours of Monday 15 August 2022.
Detective Inspector Louise Edwards, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “Our thoughts remain with Javell’s loved ones at this heart-breaking time. Specially trained officers are continuing to liaise with them to ensure they are fully updated on our investigation.
“Though this incident happened in Greater Manchester, our investigation is focussed in the West Yorkshire area and I would like to use this opportunity to thank our colleagues at West Yorkshire Police and the communities there for their support and cooperation.
“As you will know, four men have previously been charged and a fifth suspect is in custody but our enquiries are ongoing and are expected to remain so for a considerable time. Anyone with information which may assist us is asked to share it as soon as possible.”
