Officers were called to the Nodder Road area of the city after reports a 17 year old had suffered a gunshot wound. He was taken to hospital for treatment. His condition is not thought to be life threatening.

It happened around 9.10pm on Monday June 11 near the junction with Hastilar Road South.

There have been three other shootings in Sheffield in the last two months.

A number of enquiries are already underway, and I would ask anyone who may have been in and around the vicinity of the Premier convenience store on Nodder Road, to please make contact with us.

At this time, there isn’t any evidence to suggest there is a connection to any previous incidents in the Woodthorpe area, however we are in the very early stages of the investigation.

Until we have ascertained all of the facts and fully understand the circumstances, we are keeping an open mind as to the motive of the attack.

However I understand how alarming this incident will be for members of the local community.

High visibility police patrols have been deployed into the area and will remain throughout today and over the coming days.

– Detective Chief Inspector Craig Jackson, South Yorkshire Police
