Arrest after fatal shooting in Bilborough
A MAN who died in a Bilborough shooting yesterday is thought to be local man Germaine Edwards, 28.
Police have also now arrested a 32-year-old man on suspicion of murder, and he was due to be questioned by detectives today.
The victim, who has not yet been formally identified, was found collapsed in Fairnley Road, Bilborough just after 5pm last night. He was taken to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre where he later died.
Police believe he sustained injuries caused by a firearm, however, a Home Office post-mortem examination is set to be carried out later today to establish the cause of death.
Supt Brian Beasley, of Notts Police City Division, said: "Our enquiries are continuing to build up a picture of what happened last night but we still need to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard anything around 5pm last night in the Bilborough area. Did you hear the sound of a firearm being discharged?
"We believe a silver Ford Fiesta carrying two or three men, is linked to this murder. Did you see it driving at speed or erratically through Bilborough, Wollaton, or Trowell.
"A vehicle matching the description was discovered burnt out in the Cossall Lane area. If you know anything about this, I would urge you to contact us."
