This is the terrifying scene as a gunman opens fire towards rival gang members outside a busy Sheffield pub.

Jamie Howden, who was later jailed for 13 years, is seen brandishing a Makarov 9mm pistol and firing it once in the air confronting rival gang members outside the Thorncliffe Arms pub in Chapeltown back in July, 2016.

Terrified punters can be seen dashing back into the pub as 26-year-old Howden pulls the trigger after he was originally confronted in the pub smoking area.

Howden, who was started his prison term on January 6, fires a shot into the air and a further three shots off camera. He advances towards the rival group and can be seen dodging and weaving between parked cars.

The gunman then retreats and flees on foot with co-defendant Lewis Taylor, 21, who is also behind bars for his role in the incident.
