A man has been charged with the murder of a man shot dead while he sat in a car at traffic lights in Sheffield city centre.

Jordan Thomas, 22, suffered fatal injuries when he was shot last Sunday.

Asif Yousaf, 32, of Violet Bank Road, Sheffield, has been charged with his murder and with the attempted murder of another man who was also in the car.

Mr Yousaf is due before magistrates in the city on Monday. Another arrested man, aged 25, has been freed on bail.

The two men were both arrested on Christmas Day.

Mr Thomas died in hospital after the shooting in Derek Dooley Way at about 22:15 GMT last Sunday.

The injured man, who was driving the Ford Mondeo in which Mr Thomas was a passenger, was seriously injured but has since been released from hospital.
