A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder this morning following a shooting in Sheffield.

The 31-year-old is being held over the death of Aseel Al-Essaie, 23, who was gunned down in Daniel Hill, Upperthorpe, in February.

It is the eleventh arrest made in connection with the murder, with all earlier suspects released on bail pending further enquiries.

Mr Al-Essaie was shot at around 1.35pm on Saturday, February 18 as he arrived for a family gathering to celebrate his twin sister's engagement.

He was shot in his chest and was rushed to hospital but could not be saved.

Today's arrest takes the number of suspects held on suspicion of murder to four.

Men aged 22, 29 and 32 have previously been quizzed.

A 30-year-old man and two teenage boys, aged 15 and 16, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder and four suspects were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender - men aged 29 and 35 and women aged 23 and 57.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
