It is understood that the incident is not connected to the deaths of two teenage boys at a house in Gregg House Lane, Shiregreen earlier today.

An eyewitness who drove past the scene but declined to be named, said: “It was horrendous.

Police were called to the house in Holme Lane, Hillsborough.

“There was blood all over the house, all over the inside of the windows, both upstairs and down.

“There were lots of police vehicles there – four when I drove past – and it looked a terrible scene.”
