In last night's gun attack, the victim was walking through Meersbrook Park when he was shot in his cheek.

He was taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition.

A woman posting on Facebook, who said the victim was her son, said he was walking to the Cross Scythes pub when he was approached by a man who opened fire after asking for cash and cigarettes.

She said he was shot in his neck.

At 9.45pm on Wednesday, a man and woman were shot on a footpath between Crown Place and Blackwell Place, off Duke Street.

Detectives said a man opened fire towards a group of people on the footpath in what is being treated as a 'targeted' attack.

Last week a gun was fired at two homes in Bransby Street, Upperthorpe, with windows damaged in the attack.

Shocked residents said they believe a machine gun was used.

The gunman involved in the drive-by shooting has not yet been traced.

Anyone with information on any of the incidents should call South Yorkshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 08000 555111.
