He said: “We heard that somebody had been shot in the chest and in the leg.

“The customer said they had been shot randomly from outside and they didn't even hear the gunshots so whether they used a silencer on the gun, I don’t know.”

Another man said: “There is what looks to be a bullet hole in a window on the side of the pub and a massive pool of blood on the floor can be seen through the window.”

We have contacted South Yorkshire Police for more information and are awaiting a response.
