A 25-year-old man was shot in Butterthwaite Road, Shiregreen, at around 7.30pm last night.

An eye witness said he saw two men with a gun open fire at the victim before running off.

He said he heard three gun shots in total.

The road has been cordoned off by police officers all day, with residents having to sign in and out with police officers if they want to leave their homes to avoid potential forensic evidence getting lost.
