Another man charged in connection with Dudley murder

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of Mohammed Haroon Zeb in Dudley have charged a man in connection with his murder.

Mr Zeb, known as Haroon, was shot in Queens Cross during the early hours of 31 January and later died in hospital.

Akarsh Tasleem was arrested on Wednesday morning and was charged with conspiracy to commit murder this evening (18 February).

The 25-year-old, of Shaw Road, Dudley was remanded to appear before Wolverhampton Magistrates Court tomorrow.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro, from our homicide team, said: "This is still a very active investigation and I would continue to appeal to anyone with information who has not yet come forward to get in touch.

"Our thoughts remain with Mr Zeb’s family who continue to be supported by specialist officers. We’re determined to get answers and justice for them."

23-year-old Hassan Tasleem appeared at court last week charged with Haroon’s murder and remanded until his next appearance.

As part of the investigation a 26-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and three men - aged between 19 to 26 - were previously detained on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. They have all been bailed.

A 37-year-old man was previously arrested on suspicion of murder but has since been released with no further action, another man, aged 20 has also been arrested and released on bail.
