A mother has found a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition hidden in an outhouse outside her Leeds home.
The woman made the shocking discovery when she went to check the electrical box outside her property on Servia Gardens in Woodhouse.
She found a black bag hidden in a crevasse in the outhouse on September 20 last year and the bag contained a Browning shotgun without a swan.
Leeds Crown Court heard police forensic officers examine the gun and find teenage Levi Paterson’s DNA on the trigger.

Paterson, who was out on bail awaiting his conviction for two robbery offenses, was arrested and declined to comment when asked about the gun.
Prosecutor Imran Khan said Paterson was part of a gang that subjected two men to a “humiliating” attack in which they were threatened with a knife and ordered to undress.

The two victims had traveled to Leeds by train and were targeted on Crown Street, near the Corn Exchange.
One of the victims was told he would be stabbed before being ordered to remove the 1700 value designer clothes he was wearing.
The clothes included a Moncler coat and Valentino sneakers.
The second victim had his iPhone and a Versace bag stolen.
One of the victims was filmed as he was forced to walk away in the rain with nothing on his feet.
The attackers mocked the victims and then posted the images from the cell phone to Snapchat in an attempt to further humiliate them.
Paterson, of Westbourne Street, Leeds, pleaded guilty to possession of a prohibited firearm and two robbery offenses.
Richard Holland, mitigating, said Paterson was 16 at the time of the robbery offenses and 17 at the time of the firearms offense.
Paterson was sent to a young offender facility for four years.

After the case, DCI Vanessa Rolfe of the West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Investigation Team said: ‘We welcome the conviction of this man today after admitting possession of a gun fatal recovered by police in September of last year.
“I hope this sentence demonstrates that those who are prepared to get involved in gun-related offenses in any way should expect to be deprived of their liberty.
“Criminals should also be aware that if they risk handling an illegal weapon, there is every chance that we will find out your connection to it and bring you to court.
