Police investigating the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old man have arrested a second person.

Kenichi Phillips was shot dead while sitting in a car in the Ladywood area of Birmingham in March.

West Midlands Police said they arrested a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of murder in Smethwick at about 07:00 on Thursday.

A 22-year-old man arrested the day after the death remains on police bail, the force said.

Det Insp Jim Munro said officers still want to hear from people in the area at the time who may hold vital information about what happened.

A post-mortem examination confirmed Kenichi died from a gunshot wound.
