The following day, police officers executed a search warrant at an address in Manor Lane as part of their investigation into the incident.

At 12.30am on Tuesday, May 11, armed officers responded to reports that shots were fired towards that same house.

The teenage suspect was arrested on suspicion of two counts of attempted murder and firearms offences.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Murphy, of South Yorkshire Police, said: “I appreciate these incidents happening in such close proximity will be extremely concerning for local residents, however please be assured that my team has been working tirelessly over the past week to identify and locate those responsible.

“Uniformed officers will remain in the area over the coming days as we carry out further searches and enquiries; they are there for your reassurance and for you to speak to if you have any concerns.

“I would urge you to contact us if you believe you can help this investigation.”

A police cordon was in place on Manor Lane after the shooting earlier this week but it has since been removed.
