A senior detective is today issuing a renewed appeal to trace four men wanted in connection to the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Jordan Thomas in Sheffield back in 2014.

Mr Thomas was shot twice while in a Ford Mondeo on Derek Dooley Way, on the evening of Sunday 21 December. He was taken to hospital but died a short while later as a result of his injuries.

The driver of the Mondeo, a 28-year-old Sheffield man, suffered a single gunshot wound but survived the attack.

The pictures of four men, Mohammed Ali, 32, Jamal Ali, 29, Saeed Hussein, 29 and Ahmed Warsame, 30, were released back in 2015, and Detective Chief Inspector Victoria Short, the senior investigating officer, is continuing to appeal for information as to their whereabouts.

“Four years on since Mr Thomas’ death, we remain keen to hear from anyone who knows where these four men are living.

“There is still no doubt in my mind that Jordan was killed as a result of a group of people working together.

“In 2015 one man, Jama Ahmed, was held account for Jordan’s death and jailed for 36 years – but we know that there are people out there who know more, about who was involved, and where the four men we need to speak to have been staying or are currently living.

“Mr Thomas’ family are understandably still grieving. They too still have questions around Jordan’s death and I’d ask that anyone who has information about the four men mentioned, to keep Jordan’s family at the forefront of their minds.

“We believe Ali, Hussein, Warsame and Ali hold vital information about Mr Thomas’ death. Our efforts to find them continue but we are also reliant on information from the public. If you have any information, please get in touch with either us or Crimestoppers anonymously.

“Jordan’s family deserve answers and they deserve justice. We are determined to make that happen but we need your help in doing so.”

Anyone with information about those involved in the death of Jordan Thomas should call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 1090 of 21 December 2014.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of the men, or anything further, you can also speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
