17 December 2012, 17:42

A Burngreave man has been locked up for 30 years for shooting dead a man with shotgun.

24 year old Abdi Mohammed Omar, from Burngreave, has been found guilty of murdering 18 year old Deeq Ali.

Deeq Ali died from a gunshot wound after being shot at The Plaza function suite on Spital Hill in Sheffield, in the early hours of Sunday, 30 October 2011.

Detective Superintendent David Barraclough, the Senior Investigating Officer in the case, said: “This was a violent and senseless death, Deeq was shot and killed through no fault of his own. Abdi Omar turned up uninvited to a private party inside the Plaza in possession of a loaded sawn off shotgun.

"I am grateful to the many people who came forward to provide evidence about the events and circumstances surrounding Deeq's death and for the support from the residents of Burngreave during the investigation."

Deeq's family said:" We want to thank the local community for assisting the police and thank South Yorkshire Police for the investigation and all the assistance they have provided."

Omar had previously pleaded guilty to a separate offence of possession of a prohibited weapon.
