Gunmen who killed one man and left another fighting for life in shootings in Sheffield are still at large today.

Detectives are working on two gun attacks committed five days apart in which one man died and another suffered life threatening injuries.

In the most recent attack in Daniel Hill, Upperthorpe, on Saturday afternoon, Assel Al-Essaie, aged 23, was shot in his chest as he attended a family gathering to celebrate his twin sister's engagement.

He was rushed to hospital but could not be saved.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder the following day and was bailed pending further enquiries.

Five days earlier, Cameron Spalding, 25, was shot in the chest in Butterthwaite Road, Shiregreen.

He suffered life threatening injuries but is now in a stable condition in hospital.

A 24-year-old man arrested on suspicion of attempted has also been bailed.

Earlier this week South Yorkshire Police said there was nothing to suggest the two shootings were linked.

Police patrols in both areas have been stepped up and detectives are keen to hear from witnesses or anyone with information.
