Four men and a teenage boy from Sheffield and a woman, from Rotherham, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear or violence after a shooting in Woodhouse one week ago today.

A car was shot at and three men jumped in and sped off in the vehicle at around 8.10pm.
