Two men have been arrested in connection with the murder of Luton man, Paul Foster. The first man, aged 21 and from Luton, was arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday at an address in the town.

The second man, aged 24 and also from Luton, handed himself in to Luton Police Station yesterday afternoon. Both were questioned by detectives from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit and released on police bail pending further investigation.

Paul Foster, 46 years, was shot and killed in Luton on Tuesday night (April 9) after an incident outside a house in Brunel Road just before midnight.

Detective Supt Jeff Hill, Head of the Major Crime Unit, said: “I would remind members of the public that although two men have been arrested in connection with this investigation there have been no charges at this time.

“This is still an ongoing investigation and I would make a strong appeal to anyone who has information relating to this inquiry to come forward and speak with detectives.
