Details of Incident

Detectives investigating the murder of a man found with fatal injuries in Wright Road, Saltley, Birmingham have named him as Muhammed Sohail.

The family of the 25-year-old have asked us to release their tribute to him as we appeal for people to come forward with information.

Muhammed, also known as Sohail, was found seriously injured in a car at around 12.45am Saturday morning (19 February), and despite the efforts of medics he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

His family said: "As a family, we feel great sadness and despair at the loss of our beloved Sohail.

“We ask anyone who has any information about the taking of Sohail’s life to contact the police."

A post mortem carried out yesterday (Sunday) found that Muhammed died from a gunshot wound. His devastated family are being supported by specialist officers who are keeping them updated.

Detective Inspector Adam Jobson, from Force CID, said: "This is a shocking incident and our thoughts are with Muhammed's family and friends.

"We are following a number of lines of enquiry and have already spoken with a number of witnesses but we'd urge anyone who has not yet talked to us, but thinks they may information, to get in touch.
