A 43 YEAR-OLD man from Leamington has become the seventh person to be arrested following the shooting of Ben Daly.

The shooting in Leamington on August 10 had seen six people have arrested – five on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder and one on suspicion of murder. Those have been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

The 43 year-old was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. He remains in custody.

Father-of-one Ben was found by police with a gunshot wound in Clemens Street around 3am. He was taken to hospital but died shortly after as a result of his injuries. It is believed he was shot a short time earlier in nearby Frances Havergal Close.

Det Insp Collette O’Keefe said: “The investigation continues as we work to bring justice for the loved ones and friends of Ben Daly, who was shot to death in an incident that has left the town shocked and appalled.

“I would like to take this chance to renew our appeal for information on a black Audi A3, numberplate OY57 NLJ.

“Anyone who has any information on the whereabouts of this car is asked to contact us straight away.”

Anyone with information on the car (pictured) is urged to call 101 or visit, citing incident 33 of 10 August.
