Officers also spent the weekend carrying out door-to-door enquiries on the estate and looking for residents with CCTV cameras and motorists with dashcams which may have captured footage which could be vital to the investigation.

Crime scene investigation work was also carried out.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton, investigating the murder, said: “I know this incident will concern the community who live in the Manor area and I’d like to reassure the public that we are doing all we can to find those responsible.

“There will be significant number of officers in the area over the coming days, they will be continuing with house to house enquiries and searches. If you have concerns, please do talk to them, they are there to offer you help and support.”

The murder was the second in Sheffield in a week, following a fatal shooting on Clough Road, near Bramall Lane, the Saturday before.

Anyone with information about the murder should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 and quote incident number 29 of April 17.
