Drug Dealer Convicted Of Sheffield Gun Murder

26th November 2015

A drug dealer has been found guilty of shooting dead a man as he sat in a car at traffic lights in Sheffield.

Jama Ahmed has today (26 November) been sentenced to life imprisonment for shooting dead Jordan Thomas in revenge for a fatal stabbing three years earlier. Jordan Thomas, 22, was shot twice in the chest on Derek Dooley Way in 2014. The driver of the car, Neshaun Ferguson, was also shot.

Jama Ahmed, 26, of Broomhall Place, Sheffield, was found guilty of murder and attempted murder following a trial at Sheffield Crown Court.

His co-accused Asif Yousaf, 33, was found not guilty on the same charges.

The court had previously heard that Mr Thomas (pictured) was shot by a lone gunman at about 22:15 GMT on 21 December in an attack linked to the fatal stabbing of Mubarak Ali in 2011 by Mr Thomas's cousin James Knowles.

Ahmed had claimed on the day of the killing he had been watching DVDs at an address in Broomhall before going home.

Asked if he knew who had killed Mr Thomas, he previously told the court: "I would love to know. I'm completely innocent."

Anyone with information about others involved in the death of Jordan Thomas, should call South Yorkshire Police on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. - See more at: http://www.southyorkshire.police.uk/news-syp/jail-sheffield-revenge-killer#sthash.DMZ8NuxU.dpuf
