Arrest made over Sheffield shooting on New Year’s Day

Have your say

A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with a shooting in Sheffield on New Year’s Day.

The shooting on one of the city’s busiest streets, London Road, came to light only when a 45-year-old man from the Manor turned up at Sheffield Children’s Hospital just before 5am with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

He is still being treated at the Northern General Hospital.

Police confirmed yesterday a 26-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of controlled drugs.

The force also said it had carried out extra patrols in the London Road area, while a team of detectives has been working on the investigation.

Officers are still appealing for anybody with information to come forward.

The London Road shooting happened only 90 minutes after another shooting in Halfway.

Afterwards London Road hair salon owner James Worrall said he was determined to move his business, claiming customers are put off by the area’s ‘reputation’.

Report information to police on 101 quoting incident number 737 of January 1.
