Details of Incident

Murder investigation launched after fatal shooting in Sheffield

Police in Sheffield have launched a murder investigation after a man was shot at a Burngreave car wash.

Emergency services were called to the Diamond Hand Car Wash on Burngreave Road at 6.45pm on Tuesday 29 March following reports that shots had been fired.

A 21 year-old man was taken to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead a short time later. His family has been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers. 

The victim has now been named as Lamar Leroy Griffiths.

A murder investigation is now underway and extensive enquiries are ongoing.  

The early stages of the investigation would suggest that the victim was sat inside a blue BMW, parked within the Diamond Car Wash when multiple shots were discharged at the motor vehicle. The offenders are believed to have left the scene in a white Ford Fiesta motor vehicle.

The Fiesta was later found burnt out in the Darnall area.

We are keen to hear from anyone who has information about what happened, who may have CCTV footage or dash-cam footage of the incident or vehicles prior, or following the shooting.
