South Yorkshire Police has released CCTV footage of two men wanted over a shooting in a car park in Newfield Green, Gleadless, Sheffield, last month

CCTV cameras captured one of the men producing an item from a bag, before the group quickly dispersed.

Police then received reports that a firearms discharge had taken place.

Nobody was injured in the gun attack, according to the police.

Those on the bikes were last seen heading off in the direction of Gleadless Road.

Detective Constable James Hughes, leading the police probe into the shooting, said: “Early enquiries suggest a firearms discharge took place in Newfield Green and we are now carrying out further forensic and CCTV enquiries to establish who was involved and what the exact circumstances were. We do believe all those involved are known to each other.

“If you know who either man is, or hold any information about their whereabouts or what happened, there are numerous ways you can report this to us.”Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 and quote incident 775 of August 12.
