Birmingham shooting: man arrested on suspicion of murder

A 19-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 20-year-old man who was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting metres from his home.

James Teer, 20, was killed after a single shot was fired in Goosemoor Lane in Erdington, Birmingham, at 7.20pm last Thursday.

Officers detained the man, from Alum Rock, at around 4pm on Tuesday in Birmingham city centre, West Midlands police said.

The force said the suspect remains in police custody for questioning.

DCI Scott Griffiths said: “This arrest is a major step forward in our investigation but we are still appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

“James’s family have said that they can’t comprehend what’s happened or understand why anyone would want to harm their son.

“The motive is still unclear so I ask anyone who knew James or has heard any conversations that might help explain what happened to get in touch. There will be people in the community who know, or suspect, why this has happened.”
