Three men have been charged with murdering a man who was shot dead.

Patryk Olowniuk, 20, was shot in Leven Walk, Bedford, at about 21:40 GMT on Saturday.

Ryan Davis, 27, and Marcus West, 26, both of Bedford, and Lance Marshalleck, 30, of Northamptonshire, have been charged with his murder.

Police patrols are still taking place in the area to provide "reassurance" and officers are urging people with information to come forward.

Mr Marshalleck has also been charged with possessing an offensive weapon in a public place and possessing a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.

A 54-year-old woman and three men, aged 20, 22 and 26, who were previously arrested on suspicion of murder have been released on bail.
