The investigation into a fatal shooting in the Page Hall area of Sheffield on 12th December 2023 continues at pace.

Details of Incident

So far, ten individuals have been arrested in connection to this murder and released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Kevin Pokuta, 19, died in hospital following a shooting on Tuesday the 12th of December.  A post mortem revealed that he died as a result of a single gunshot wound.

The senior investigating officer DCI Andrea Bowell, said  

"Whilst at present no one has been charged in connection with Kevin's murder, we know people out there will have information which will assist us with our investigation.  Information provided by the public is vital to our enquiries.  If you were in the area in the late evening of the 11th, or the early hours of the 12th and saw anything suspicious we would like to hear from you.  If you have dashcam or any other footage that you think might be of use, please let us know.  The smallest piece of information is often the missing jigsaw piece we are looking for."
