Officers, who are treating the reported shooting as an isolated incident, are continuing to investigate but have yet to make any arrests.

They appealed today for information about a 'dirty red' coloured car seen in the area around the time gunshots were heard.

"Did you see the car? Were you in the area at the time? If so please do get in touch."

South Yorkshire Police said officers have been carrying out house-to-house enquiries and are following 'a number of lines of enquiry' but are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time.
