Eighth man charged over Dudley shooting

Police in Dudley have charged a teenager with conspiring to murder a man shot dead in Dudley earlier this year – the eighth person charged in connection with the killing.

Detectives arrested Shamraz Ali yesterday morning (9 March) from his home in Tanfield Road, Dudley, and last night charged him with plotting to kill Mohammed Haroon Zeb.
Mr Zeb died after being shot in Queens Cross, Dudley, on 31 January. Ali, aged 19, is set to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court this morning.
Umar Ali, aged 20, of Blowers Green Road, Mohammed Rafiq, aged 19, of Gammage Street and Gurdeep Sandhu, aged 23, of Blowers Green Road have all been remanded into prison ahead of their next court appearance.

Four others had already been charged and are also now in prison awaiting trial. Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro from our Homicide Unit, said:

“This is a complex investigation; we suspect a group of people played a part in Mr Zeb’s murder.
“Our investigations are progressing and will continue until I’m confident we have identified everyone we suspect was involved in the conspiracy.
“We are determined to get justice for Mr Zeb’s family.”
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact officers via Live Chat, or by calling 101. Quote 20DY/28354Z/21.
