Heart-felt plea from father of shooting victim

The father of a Luton man who was shot dead has made a heart-felt appeal for information six months after his son's death.

Detectives believe people in the local community know who killed Paul Foster but haven't come forward through fear or misplaced loyalty.

The 46-year-old father-of-three was the victim of one of several gun-related crimes in the town this year.

£10,000 reward to help catch Paul's killer

Paul Foster, who was shot dead in Luton in April

Six months to the day since Paul Foster was shot dead in Luton, police are offering a £10,000 reward to help catch his killer.

The 46-year-old died at Brunel Road in Lewsey Farm as he left a friend's home on April 9.

Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder, interviewed, and released - but no-one has been charged yet.

Det Supt Paul Fullwood said: "We know there are people living locally who can solve this case and we hope the offer of cash will encourage them to do the right thing and come forward and speak to police.

"[Paul's] death has left a family in despair. Three children have lost their father and a wife her husband."
