Two gunmen who fired a shotgun at a woman’s face and head before turning the gun on her son have been jailed.

Connor Hadi, 26, and Bradley Jenkins, 28, had been on trial at Sheffield Crown Court for the last three weeks and the jury convicted them on a charge of attempted murder.

The pair were also charged with possession of firearms and found guilty by the jury over the shooting on Castledale Croft on January 6.

Hadi, of Toll Bar Avenue, Sheffield, and Jenkins, of Waverley View, Rotherham, were both jailed for 27 years.

Det Ch Insp Paul Murph ysaid: “On the night of January 6, police were called to reports that shots had been fired at a number of people, who had been stood on this residential street in the heart of the Manor.

“The target was a 23-year-old man, but his mother was the first victim, with bullets hitting her shoulder, face and head which left her needing hospital treatment.

“A short time later, their intended target was also injured, after he followed and challenged the pair in a nearby garden. He received gunshot wounds to his arms and hands.”

The build-up to the shooting had started earlier in the evening, with an argument between Hadi and Jenkins and the 23-year-old on Hastillar Road South.

A short time later, at around 7.46pm, shots were fired into a group of people on Castledale Croft.

DCI Murphy added: “Hadi and Jenkins drove to the location in a stolen black Nissan Qashqai which had false number plates.

“Shots were fired recklessly at the group of people, which included the 23-year-old man they’d argued with earlier on. A number of members of the public were in the area as the shooting took place.

“The men then fled the scene, abandoning their vehicle and running towards Prince of Wales Road.

“An unarmed police officer attending an unrelated incident heard the shots, saw the vehicle being abandoned and called for resources to be deployed.”

Hadi and Jenkins were chased in another vehicle, with those inside confronting them in a garden.

At this point more shots were fired and the 23-year-old man was injured.

Shotgun casings were found at each location, as well as evidence of damage caused by a firearm on vehicles and buildings.

DCI Murphy added: “We are extremely pleased with the sentencing today; it is right that these men were brought before the court for their deplorable actions. I’m thankful these men will be off the streets for a significant amount of time and unable to pose further danger to the public.

“This investigation was supported by the local community and sends a clear message that violence of any kind will not be tolerated, and will not create fear in our communities if we all work together.

“Today’s verdicts should act as a significant warning for those who continue to carry firearms or who are engaged in serious and organised crime in our city, you will be identified and justice will be served.”
