A man who was found seriously injured in Bilborough subsequently died from a gunshot wound, a Home Office post-mortem examination has tonight confirmed.

The victim, who has not yet been formally identified, but is believed to be Germaine Edwards, 28, of Bilborough, was found collapsed in Fairnley Road, Bilborough just after 5pm last night (Saturday 17 November 2012).

He was taken to Nottinghams Queens Medical Centre where he later died.

A 32-year-old man who has been arrested on suspicion of murder remains in police custody overnight.

Enquiries are continuing to establish what happened.

Supt Brian Beasley, of the City Division, said: “It is important to speak to anyone who may have information that can help our inquiry.

“Around 5pm last night there are likely to have been a number of people in and around the Fairnley Road area and we are keen to speak to them.

“We are also looking to piece together the movements of a silver Ford Fiesta which we believe is linked to this murder investigation. A vehicle matching the description was later found burnt out in Cossall Lane near Trowell. Did you see this car being driven erratically or at speed around 5pm? If you know anything, please tell us.”
