CCTV has been released of three men police want to speak to in connection with a fatal drug-related shooting in Southampton.

Jahmel Jones, 23, died from a bullet wound to the head at a property in St Mary Street on Saturday.

The images show the three men walking along Old Northam Road in Southampton at 10:24 BST, just before the shooting.

About half an hour later they are seen walking back along the same road in the direction of the Esso petrol station.

All three men are believed to be black and were wearing dark hooded tops with the hoods up.

Gun found

Police are treating the shooting as murder.

Det Supt Callan Cessford said: "We would like to hear from anyone who remembers seeing them at any stage on their journey, especially if they saw them after they passed the petrol station.

"A large team of officers are currently working on this case and a number of strong leads are being followed up.

St Mary's Southampton Police believe the victim and suspects were known to each other

"I would urge anyone who has any information about the murder, or who thinks they may have seen the men on Saturday, to contact us."

Police say they believe the shooting was an isolated incident.

They believe the victim, from Lyon Street, Southampton, and the suspects were known to each other.

Tests are being carried out on a gun found on Monday.

Five people, two women, aged 36 and 21, and three men, aged 41, 21 and 18, all from Southampton, have been arrested in connection with the killing and bailed until 11 June.
