Patryk Olowniuk was found on Leven Walk in Brickhill. He died from a gunshot wound.

Lance Marshalleck, 30, from Northamptonshire, Ryan Davis, 27, and Marcus West, 26, who are both from Bedford were arrested on Thursday and charged with murder yesterday (November 2).

Marshalleck was also charged with possessing an offensive weapon in a public place and possessing a firearm with intent to commit an offence. They have all been remanded in custody.

Officers will continue to carry out patrols in the area today - a week on from Mr Olowniuk’s death.
