A police helicopter was also deployed to the area to monitor the scene from the air.

On May 8, a 30-year-old man was shot in his leg on Chadwick Road, Woodthorpe.

The gun attack, close to the junction with Fishponds Road West and Woodthorpe Community Primary School, came just 24 days after another man was shot on nearby Nodder Road.

On that occasion a 42-year-old man was also shot in his leg and a 30-year-old man was arrested.

The suspect arrested was held on suspicion of assault and firearms offences before being released while investigations continue.

In March 2016 a gun was discharged close to the Premier store on Nodder Road, Woodthorpe and in July of that year a gun was fired at a house in nearby Hastilar Road South.

Two men were each jailed for seven years for their roles in the shooting outside the convenience store.

Anyone with information about the latest shooting should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 and quote incident number 989 of June 11.
