Man critically ill after shooting in Sheffield

A 24-year-old man is in a critical condition after being shot in Sheffield.

Emergency services were called to Handsworth Grange Road just after 10.20pm on Sunday to find the man with a life-threatening head injury after an air rifle was discharged.

Two local men, aged 23 and 47, have been arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent and remain in custody.

Police are investigating the circumstances of the incident and have recovered the air rifle from the property.

"Even though air weapons are legally owned, this type of incident demonstrates they are dangerous and need to be treated with great respect. My sympathies are with the family of the man in hospital. Anyone using a weapon in a way that could endanger the public should be reported to the police immediately."
