Investigations have been launched into a spate of recent shootings in Sheffield which cars were fired at

Today, the crime scene, on a stretch of road between Kilton Hill and Catherine Road, is sealed off and under police guard.

The investigation into the incident is the third involving cars being shot at over recent weeks.

In the first, on Ecclesall Road, a Rolls-Royce and a Lamborghini were both fired at in the early hours of Monday, February 7.

After the Lamborghini was shot at, the car was driven to Whirlowdale Road, Whirlow, where it pulled over and an injured man got into a Rolls-Royce.

He was driven to nearby Sheffield Rugby Club, where emergency services were called.

The Rolls-Royce which transported the injured man to safety had been shot at earlier.

On Thursday, March 17, another car was shot at close to the scene of the Ecclesall Road gun attack.

Emergency services were called after a man was shot near to the Waitrose supermarket at the junction of London Road and Boston Street.

The victim, a 39-year-old man, was travelling in a black Kia Rio when shots were fired towards his car.
