The fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man in Nottingham has been linked to an earlier firearms incident.

Malakai McKenzie was fatally wounded outside The Hubb pub, in Hucknall Road, Sherwood, on 21 April.

Detectives said they now believe it was connected to shots being fired in Riber Crescent, Basford, on 30 March.

They have appealed for information about a large gold-coloured Volvo saloon car, which may be connected to both incidents.

Officers said they also wanted to speak to anyone who was at a party at Meridian Court, near Bagthorpe Close in Sherwood, on the night of 20 April and the early hours of 21 April.

Five people remain in custody in connection with the murder of Malakai McKenzie. Three men, aged 22, 20, and 18, have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

A fourth man, aged 38, has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

A 20-year-old man, who was arrested on 1 May, remains in police custody on suspicion of murder.

Three men, aged 19, 17, and 24, and a 21-year-old woman, have also been bailed pending further enquiries.
