A third man has been arrested after the body of a woman was found at a house in Leicestershire.

Officers said they were called to an address in Hinckley on Sunday where the body was found with a gunshot wound.

Police said they were questioning the 29-year-old, and would continue to question a 36-year-old man arrested in the West Midlands on Monday.

A 27-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder, has been released without charge.

Witness appeal

Detectives said Monday's post mortem examination into the cause of the woman's death found she died of a single gunshot wound.

Formal identification of the woman was yet to take place, they said.

A team of officers are continuing to look for two men wearing hoods who left the scene in a dark-coloured car.

They said they want to speak to anyone who saw two men alleged to have been seen in the area at the time of the shooting.
