A man has been charged with murder following the shooting of a man in Sheffield.

Ramey Salem, 20, was found seriously injured in a property on Grimesthorpe Road South on 16 November. He later died in hospital.

Jabari Fanty, 18, of Sheffield, is accused of Mr Salem's murder and also with conspiracy to murder in a separate incident in the city, on 31 October.

He is one of six men arrested in connection with Mr Salem's death.

Three other men, aged between 18 and 21, were arrested across the city over the weekend, police said.

Last week, two Sheffield men, aged 21 and 33, were arrested in connection with the killing.

South Yorkshire Police said the 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and the 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. They have both been released while inquiries continue.

Mr Fanty of Broadhead Road, is due before Sheffield Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.
