South Yorkshire Police said an injured man was taken to hospital and that no arrests have yet been made.

In May, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the same street.

He underwent surgery and survived, but in 2008, 17-year-old Tarek Chaiboub was shot dead on the same street when fellow members of the S3 gang he was part of turned against him.

His killer were jailed for a total of 110 years behind bars.
