Police are appealing to trace the driver of a private hire vehicle, which was on Rea Street South on Wednesday 3 February at the time when a man was shot dead during an armed robbery.
A murder investigation has been launched into the death of Birmingham businessman Akhtar Javeed, 56, who was shot in the neck at the Direct Source 3 warehouse in Digbeth.
We are keen to trace the driver of a private hire vehicle believed to be a saloon which followed a vehicle with no lights on from Rea Street South turning left into MacDonald street at around 6.40pm. We believe this was a targeted robbery attempt at the business premises in Rea Street South, near to the junction with MacDonald Street.
It happened at a time when other people may have been leaving work for the day and someone may have seen what happened or have important information about the suspects."
Mr Javeed's family have been made aware of the result and paid tribute to him describing him as “an honest man who valued his family more than anything else.”
Please help bring closure to our family and justice for him. He was cruelly taken away from us and his young children who will now have to grow up without their father. Please help us."
