A man arrested over a fatal shooting in Sheffield has been released on police bail.

Detectives quizzed the 31-year-old yesterday over the death of Aseel Al-Essaie, 23, who was gunned down in Daniel Hill, Upperthorpe, in February.

He was held on suspicion of murder, taking the number of suspects arrested so far to 11.

Another three men aged 22, 29 and 32 were arrested on suspicion of murder and a 30-year-old man and two teenage boys, aged 15 and 16, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Two men aged 29 and 35 and two women aged 23 and 57 were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Mr Al-Essaie was shot at around 1.35pm on Saturday, February 18 as he arrived for a family gathering to celebrate his twin sister's engagement.

He was shot in his chest and was rushed to hospital but could not be saved.

The car believed to have been used by the gunman was found abandoned and burnt out in Rough Lane, Wortley, Barnsley.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
