A BOY was shot dead on the street today in a horror record by shooting.
The 12-year-old victim was rushed to hospital after being shot in the leg in the Arbourthorne area of Sheffield tonight.
An important hunt has been launched for the gunman and the cops appeal to the witnesses.
The young man was standing with a group of adults and other children when an engine speeded along Errington Road.
The shooter then emerged from the window and started firing bullets into the group when the boy was shot.
Investigative inspector Denise Booth said: “Specialized officers were in the area this afternoon and evening, examining the scene and talking to the witnesses as we work to put together the exact circumstances of this incident, what led to it and identify the responsible.
“What we know so far is that the boy was with a group of other people, both children and adults, in the Errington Road area when a white car is said to have left, firing shots from the window.
