'No firearms' involved in incident at Sheffield city centre office building
Police have issued an update after eyewitnesses claimed there had been a ‘drive-by shooting’ at a Sheffield city centre office building.
Eyewitnesses earlier claimed that armed police were dealing with an incident at the Capita building, just off Derek Dooley Way, at around 5.30pm on Saturday.
One said she thought the damage to the windows had been caused by gunshots but South Yorkshire Police said the incident was being treated as criminal damage and no firearms were involved.
The force also said no armed officers attended the scene.
When The Star attended ground floor windows were smashed and offensive language had also been sprayed onto them.
A security guard was inside the office canteen, where the smashed windows were, but police had left the scene.
One worker also arrived at the scene but said he was not sure what had happened.
Anyone with any information should call police on 101.
