A police cordon is in place at the crime scene, which stretches across the entire width of the street and takes in a number of homes.
An alleyway is also cordoned off and police officers are guarding the scene.
One resident said he heard two shots last night.
He said: "I heard two shots at around 10pm. I could tell they were shots because I know what they sound like as I worked as a policeman in Latvia for eight years.
"The police arrived later and I think there were around six police cars. We could see the flashing blue lights."
Another resident said the shooting had shocked the community.
Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
