A post mortem examination carried out on Monday revealed that Olowniuk from Bedford died from a gunshot wound.

Following his death, an investigation was launched by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, and is ongoing.

Four people – a 54-year-old woman, a 26-year-old man, a 22-year-old man and a 20-year-old man – who were arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the death have since been released on bail.

Officers will continue to patrol the streets to provide further reassurance to local communities.

People can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 or use the online reporting centre on the Bedfordshire Police website.

We are making progress with our investigation, but we are still appealing for any information from members of the public who may have witnessed the incident or may have seen Patryk in the area before it happened to come forward.
