FOUR men have been arrested over the shooting of a Coventry mum.

Leicestershire Police said the men, aged 24, 25, 29 and 30, were cuffed this morning (Monday) in the West Midlands area and remained in custody.

Mum-of-two Hayley Pointon, from the city, was shot dead at an address in Sunnydale Road, Hinckley, on Sunday, February 3.

A post mortem confirmed the 30-year-old died from a single gun shot wound.

Two men, aged 29 and 34, who had already been arrested, have since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Yarwood, who is leading the investigation, said the investigation was continuing despite the arrests.

"We will not stop until we have brought those responsible to justice," he said.

"Two young children have lost their mother and Hayley’s family are desperate for anyone with information to come forward and they, like us, believe someone out there can help.

"It isn’t always easy coming to the police and maybe some people feel there may be repercussions if they do.

"The information you can provide will be treated with the utmost confidentially and if you can’t contact the police please contact Crimestoppers anonymously."

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Leicestershire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
