A man from Burngreave has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the murder of an 18-year-old man. Abdi Mohammed Omar shot Deeq Ali in October 2011. He was found guilty after a week long trial at Sheffield Crown Court.

Det Supt David Barraclough said: "This was a violent and senseless death, Deeq was shot and killed through no fault of his own. Abdi Omar turned up uninvited to a private party inside the Plaza in possession of a loaded sawn off shotgun.

Deeq's family said: "We want to thank the local community for assisting the police and thank South Yorkshire Police for the investigation and all the assistance they have provided."
