Three men and a teenage boy have been arrested today on suspicion of attempted murder after a man was shot in Cantley this morning.
Police received reports at around 11.20am of a disturbance and a suspected firearms discharge on Aldesworth Road.
A short time later, officers were notified that a 30-year-old man had attended Doncaster Royal Infirmary with suspected gunshot wounds. The man remains in a serious but stable condition.
Armed response officers were deployed to the area and arrested a 15-year-old boy and three men aged 18, 27 and 52 on suspicion of attempted murder. All are currently in custody.
Det Ch Insp Jamie Henderson says: “We are currently treating this incident as a targeted attack and we do not believe there is any wider risk to the public.
“I do however understand that there will be concern within the local community and I would like to reassure people that our enquiries are moving quickly.”
There will be an increased police presence in the area, including armed response officers, throughout the day and into the evening, Det Ch Insp Henderson added.
Police are appealing for anyone with any information to contact South Yorkshire Police, quoting incident number 320 of 6 May or via their online reporting portal, or to contact Crimestoppers.
