Detectives believe a dirty red or dark coloured small hatchback could hold the key to solving a recent firearms discharge in Bransby Street, Sheffield.

Officers are urging anyone who saw the car or may hold information to contact them immediately, as the investigation enters its second week.

Detective Sergeant Mitchell Leach said: “Thankfully members of the public have been forthcoming with information and supportive of police efforts, but we believe this dirty red or dark coloured small hatchback with roof bars may hold the key to determining who is responsible for this serious offence. It’s imperative that we trace the vehicle and apprehend the offender.”

An investigation was launched after a firearm was discharged in the Walkley area of Sheffield a fortnight ago, Wednesday 18 April. Police were called to Bransby Street just after 11pm, after residents reported hearing gunshots. No one was injured but the windows of two houses were damaged.

DS Leach added: “Forensic work has been completed and our team has spoken to local residents in establishing what happened, but we feel there may be vital information out there and we need your help if you saw the car or know who might be responsible for firing at the houses. Serious incidents of this nature are rare and we are working hard to establish what happened.”

If you have information, please call 101 quoting incident number 1169 of 18 April 2018. You can also pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
