The 33-year-old was shot at from a car in Rickman Drive, Lee Bank, just before 9.45pm on Saturday, August 25.

He was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound – but did not survive his injury and died in hospital six days later on Friday night.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out in due course.

Efforts are still on-going to trace the car and its occupants.

Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from West Midlands Police homicide team, said: "Sadly this has now become a murder enquiry after the man’s tragic death.

"I would ask anyone with information who has not already spoken to us to come forward.

"Guns have no place in our society and we are determined to bring anyone who thinks it is acceptable to carry and use one to justice."

Anyone with information is asked to call officers on 101.

Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
