Incredible gesture shows how much Sheffield dad Khurm Javed meant to his community
More than £8,500 has been donated for good causes in memory of a dad and solicitor shot dead in Sheffield.
Khurm Javed, aged 30, was gunned down on Clough Road, close to Bramall Lane, on Saturday night.
South Yorkshire Police said there was a ‘confrontation between two parties’ before shots were fired.
A second man, aged 31, suffered injuries to his foot in the gun attack and was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.
Two men, 21 and 23, were arrested on suspicion of murder on Monday and remained in police custody last night.
Khurm, a University of Sheffield graduate, worked as a solicitor for Alison Law Solicitors on London Road, which has closed its city office this week as a mark of respect.
He was married and had two young children.
An online fundraising appeal has been launched in his memory, with the cash to be donated to good causes.
Raheel Nasir, who set up the appeal, said Khurm ‘will be looking down on us smiling’ at the generosity shown.
He described him as ’a much loved member of our family and community - one whom everyone has spoken about so highly’.
He added: “He was a determined and bright young man with his whole life ahead of him.
“In his short time on this world, he has left a huge impact on those around him for his kindness and generosity. He has left a non replaceable void in the hearts and lives of all those he loved.”
