A 25-year-old man also arrested on suspicion of murder has been released on police bail as enquiries continue.

Officers are continuing to appeal for anyone with information to contact their homicide team - get in touch via live chat at, call 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Quote crime number 20/1126386/21.

Kimani, who turned 18 at the start of June, was a passenger in the private hire vehicle when a shotgun was fired once at the vehicle from a dark hatchback on Dudley Road East, Tividale.

The car then sped away from the scene of the shooting, which happened just before 1.30am on Sunday 20 June.

Three special constables who were nearby came across the scene and tended to the youngster, but nothing could be done to save him.

He was taken to hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.
