Shotgun fired in shop armed raid

Have your say

A MASKED man discharged a ‘shotgun-type’ weapon, terrifying staff in a Sheffield convenience store.

One male worker was left shaken, with a minor cut to his chin, after the attempted armed robbery at Premier Convenience Store on Mather Road, Darnall.

A man in black clothing, with his face covered, entered the store and produced a ‘shotgun type’ weapon.

He made demands for money, discharging the weapon into a perspex screen, before fleeing empty handed. The staff member’s cut was caused by the perspex.

PC Michelle Dakin said: “We are treating this incident very seriously. Being confronted by someone with a weapon is an extremely disturbing experience and, thankfully, no-one was seriously injured.

Witnesses or anyone with information about the raid at around 7.25pm on Monday should call 101 quoting incident 920 of December 12.
