Yesterday, police released a fourth man, aged 27 from Coventry on police bail, pending further enquiries.

Mr Gower was found dead in an outbuilding at the rear of a house in Rugby Road, Bulkington on Sunday 26 June.

Police attended at 4.55pm following a report of a gun being fired. Mr Gower was declared dead at the scene. A post mortem examination showed he had died from stab injuries and had also suffered a gunshot wound to his hip.
