Two men, aged 21 and 23, were arrested for murder earlier this week before being released on bail after police questioning.

Sheffield District Commander, Temporary Chief Superintendent Shelley Hemsley, released a statement following the murder in which she stressed that tackling gun crime is a priority for city officers.

The Chief of Police said: ‘I want to be clear that the fight against gun crime is a priority for my teams here in Sheffield, important work is underway to deter, detect and disrupt criminals involved in this type of crime .

“Our dedicated armed crime team, formed last year, has had significant successes, including the seizure of 66 illegally held firearms in 2020.

“Operation Fortify, which unites police and partner agencies, is also disrupting the work of organized crime groups, collecting and sharing information on key locations and criminals.

She added: “What is essential is that the community works with the police, that community leaders and representatives engage with us, talk to us and share information with us.

Call South Yorkshire Police on 101 and provide Incident Number 984 of April 10th.
