Two men from Luton have been arrested after the fatal shooting of a 46-year-old man in the town.

A 21-year-old from Luton was arrested on suspicion of murder and a 24-year-old reported to police on Thursday.

Both were questioned by detectives and released on bail pending further investigation, a spokesman said.

Paul Foster died at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital after an incident outside a house in Brunel Road just before midnight on Tuesday.

Mr Foster, known at Big Shyne, was taken to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

He died shortly after arrival and a post-mortem examination revealed he had died from a gunshot wound to his chest.

Family devastated

Detectives continue to investigate his murder and want to speak to anyone who has information about his death.

Det Supt Jeff Hill said: "Although two men have been arrested in connection with this investigation there have been no charges at this time.

"This is still an ongoing investigation and I would make a strong appeal to anyone who has information relating to this inquiry to come forward and speak with detectives.

"Remember we all need to work together to put a stop to this type of violence which has left Paul's wife, children and family devastated."
