Police are asking for witnesses to come forward after city shooting
Detectives think the victim of a city shooting, Germaine Edwards, 28, may have been attacked 15 minutes before he was shot.
Police are asking people who were in Wollaton Vale or Balloon Woods Estate at around 4.45pm on Saturday to come forward with information.
They are also asking if anyone witnessed unusual activity around a silver Ford Fiesta.
A car matching the same description was later found burned out, near Trowell.
Germaine Edwards, of Bilborough, was discovered in Fairnley Road, just after 5pm on Saturday, after being shot in his abdomen.
Witnesses have reported seeing a silver Ford Fiesta drive into the street and hearing a loud bang, before the 28-year-old was pushed out of the rear of the vehicle.
He was taken to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre, where he later died.
A post-mortem examination confirmed the cause of death to be a gunshot wound.
Specially trained officers are supporting his family at this distressing time.
A 32-year-old man, who has been arrested on suspicion of murder, remains in police custody.
The investigation team hope members of the public who were out in the Wollaton, Bilborough, and Trowell areas that afternoon can help them piece together Germaine's final movements.
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Heydon, who is leading the investigation, said: "In the ten or fifteen minutes before he was found, we believe Germaine, who was travelling in his Fiesta with a friend, was stopped in the Wollaton Vale area.
"He was then forced into the back of the vehicle by at least one man, who is described as black and wearing a cream-coloured jacket.
Did you see this take place?
"Did you see Germaine's friend escape from the car near to Broxtowe Police Station, in the Strelley Road area, a few minutes later?
"Did you narrowly avoid being hit by the car at a nearby pedestrian crossing?
"Or did you see a person setting light to a vehicle in Cossall Lane, near Trowell, at around 5.30pm that same day?
"Despite making an arrest I am still appealing for information.
"A man is dead, leaving his family devastated and wondering why this has happened to their loved one. Can you help us find those answers?
"Did you see Germaine that day or do you know him well enough to understand why this has happened?
"Did you see his silver Fiesta or its occupants?
"If you have any information that might help this investigation, please call me. Your information will be treated in absolute confidence."
