Four men have sentenced after being found guilty of murder: Michael Goodwin, 26, and Leon Riley, 27, were each jailed for 28 years, while Connor Goodwin, 27, and Keenan Anderson, 25, each received 32 years. In August 2018, the men pulled up in two stolen cars on a street in Birmingham, West Midlands before one of them shot a man in the back with a handgun. The victim died in hospital six days later. CCTV and phone data linked the men to the attack and tests proved that the gun, recovered during a raid in Derbyshire, was the weapon used. No motive for the murder has been discovered.

Sean Smith, aged 36, has been jailed for 45 months after admitting two counts of fraudulent evasion and prohibition, attempting to import an acquired prohibited firearm and attempting to acquire ammunition for a firearm. After his home in Bucknall, Staffordshire was taken over by criminals, Smith was “groomed” to order a Smith & Wesson handgun from America. However, the weapon was intercepted in the US. Police officers subsequently raided Smith’s home and recovered a box of ammunition. On sentencing, the judge said, “ This is an extremely serious degree of offences. Trying to obtain a gun clearly has only one explanation - that it will be used by someone for criminal purposes. There's no evidence that that would be you. You should not have gone along with it. If you had succeeded the results could have been catastrophic.”
