Man arrested in hunt for Birmingham man’s murderer

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of Murtaza Nasir in Stechford last month have arrested a man for his murder.

Mr Nazir, aged 26, was fatally shot on Bagshaw Road on 28 August.

Since then officers have worked tirelessly to find those responsible and last night (16 Sept) a 22-year-old Birmingham man was arrested on suspicion of murder. Two women, aged 49 and 22, were also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

They all remain in custody today for questioning.

Detective Chief Inspector Scott Griffiths, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “There has been no let-up in our search for Murtaza’s killer and this is a significant step forward in our investigation, but we still need anyone with information to come forward.

“We need to understand what led to this tragedy and find all those involved.”
