Officers investigating the shooting of a man in Leamington in the early hours of this morning have arrested four people in Leamington and Warwick this evening (Thursday 10 August).
A murder investigation was launched after the man was found with a gunshot wound in Clemens Street. It is believed he was shot a short time earlier in Frances Havergal Close.
The man in his late 20s was taken to hospital where he sadly died.
Two men and two women have now been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.
Chief Inspector Faz Chishty, local area commander for South Warwickshire, said: “Today has seen a huge policing operation to identify the four suspects and bring them into custody where they will be questioned by detectives.
“We’re continuing to appeal for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. We know the victim was in Kelsey’s yesterday afternoon and evening with four other people. We’re keen to speak to anyone who was in the bar during this time.
“This incident has been big shock for the local community, and we will continue to have a presence in the area over the coming days. The cordon is likely to remain in place for some time; we are fully aware of the disruption this is causing in the local community, and I’d like to thank people for their ongoing patience and support.”
