An investigation has been launched following reports of shots being fired at a car in the Conisbrough area of Doncaster yesterday afternoon.

At around 1.10pm, police received calls to say that a man got out of a grey four-door car, possibly a Volkswagen, on Sheffield Road, at the junction with Poplar Grove, and fired two shots at a blue car, thought to be a BMW or Seat Leon, driving along Sheffield Road towards Rotherham.

The man who reportedly fired the shots is described as wearing a mask and is said to have left the area, at speed, heading towards Rotherham.

No one is thought to have been injured.

Detective Sergeant Claire Moss, investigating, said: “At this time the driver of the blue car and any passengers have not been identified and I’d like to encourage them to please come forward.

“I’d also like to speak to anyone who was in the area and who saw what happened, information and descriptions you have may prove helpful in identifying the offender and also the occupants of the blue car.

“Enquiries remain ongoing to establish the motive and exact circumstances around this incident and if you have any information that could assist detectives please call 101 quoting incident number 482 of 8 May 2018.

“If you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
