A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a man outside a house in Luton.

Paul Foster, 46, died from a gun wound to the chest after being shot on Brunel Road in the town in April.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and possession with intent to supply cannabis following a raid in Leighton Buzzard, police said.

He was released on bail. Two other men remain on bail in connection with the shooting.

Det Insp Sam Khanna, from Bedfordshire Police, said: "This is still an ongoing investigation and detectives are continuing to follow all lines of inquiry.

"I would make a strong appeal to anyone who has information relating to this investigation to come forward and speak with detectives."

About 500 mourners turned out for Mr Foster's funeral in May, forcing part of the town to be closed off to traffic.

Mr Foster was the uncle of murdered Luton teenager Delaney Brown, 19, whose killer was jailed for a minimum of 24 years in May.

There have been 10 shootings in Luton this year and 45 arrests in relation to firearms incidents.
