Shortly after 1am, police were alerted to shooting by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service. A call had been made reporting that a man had been shot inside a property in Grimesthorpe Road South. By the time ambulance crews arrived, he had already been transported to the hospital.
The 20-year-old sadly died from his injuries shortly after arriving at Northern General.
The investigation is in its early stages but at this stage, it is believed to be a targeted attack. We are asking anyone with any information about the man’s death, to contact police.
Senior investigating officer, DCI Mark Oughton said: “Cordons remain in place in the area today while officers conduct their enquiries, including thorough scene searches and an intensive trawl of CCTV footage.
“Extra officers will be patrolling the area today to provide further reassurance and anyone with concerns should speak to one of our officers.
“As our investigation progresses, I’d encourage anyone with information that could help the enquiry to get in touch with police or you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously.”
