There was a heavy police presence last night and officers are to return to the city estate this morning.
On Sunday, March 17, a gun was fired into a house in Shirecliffe, injuring a woman.
The gun was fired through a window in Musgrave Crescent and a woman in the house at the time was hurt when the glass shattered.
An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
He was later released under investigation.
In August 2009, a takeaway worker was shot dead in Shirecliffe.
Safrajur Jahangir, aged 23 and from Darnall, was shot at point blank range as he pulled up outside a house to deliver a takeaway.
The young businessman, who ran the Spice Hut on Middlewood Road, Hillsborough, had been lured to an address in Scraith Wood Drive by a bogus caller who placed an order for a curry.
Seconds after he pulled up in his silver Vauxhall Corsa, Safrajur was shot twice in what detectives at the time called an 'organised hit' by a gunman lying in wait.
Detectives had believed he was shot as part of a long running feud between two families and seven men were charged.
Six went on trial accused of conspiracy to murder but the case collapsed.
A seventh man was deemed unfit to stand trial.
Anyone with information on the latest incident should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 and quote incident 686 of March 27.
