A man has appeared in court 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, was fatally injured when he was shot on 21 December.

Asif Yousaf, 32, of Violet Bank Road, Sheffield, is charged with his murder and the attempted murder of a 27-year-old man, who was also in the car.

No pleas were entered and Mr Yousaf was remanded in custody to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on 12 January.

Another man, aged 25, arrested in connection with the shooting 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.

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