A man who suffered a fatal gunshot wound in Sheffield on Saturday (10 April) has today been formally identified as Khurm Javed. This comes as detectives question two men in connection with his death.

Police were called at 9.40pm on Saturday evening to reports that a man had been shot in Clough Road. The 30-year-old was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem examination carried out today (12 April) concluded that he died of a gunshot wound.

A second man, aged 31, suffered injuries to his foot and is now recovering after being discharged from hospital.

Two people have today been arrested as part of the inquiry. The men, aged 21 and 23, were both detained on suspicion of murder and remain in police custody at this time.

Mr Javed’s family continue to be supported by specially trained officers as detectives work to piece together the events which led up to his death.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Michael Hakin said: “Our investigation is continuing at pace and my team and I remain keen to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident to come forward.

“It’s believed a confrontation between two parties took place, prior to the fatal shot being fired.
