Extra police patrols are continuing in a Sheffield suburb where a dad-of-two was shot dead in a city street.

Khurm Javed, aged 30, was gunned down in Clough Road, near Bramall Lane, on Saturday, April 10.

Detectives investigating the killing said there was a ‘confrontation between two parties’ before the fatal shot was fired but no other details have yet been released.

Another man, 31, was also injured in the shooting but survived and has since been discharged from hospital.

Two men, aged 21 and 23, were arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday and remained in police custody last night.

Detective Chief Inspector Michael Hakin, leading the police probe into the killing, said: “Our uniformed officers remain in the area and will do so over the coming days. They are there for your reassurance and for you to speak to if you have any questions or information.”

Flowers and balloons have been left at the crime scene and tributes to Khurm have been paid online.

Over £6,500 has been donated to an online fundraising page in Khurm’s memory, with the cash to be donated to good causes in his memory.

Raheel Nasir, who set up the page, said: “A mother has lost her most loved child, a father has lost his backbone, a wife has lost her soulmate, a sister has lost her childhood friend, a brother has lost his confidante, a niece and nephew have lost their fatherly figure, a friend has lost his most loyal support and above all, a son and daughter have lost their most loving and gentle father that they doted on.”

Former colleague Jon Oakland-Webb described Khurm as a ‘perfect gent’ and added: “Words fail me as to an answer for what has happened.”
