A man found dead in his car in a country lane in Warwickshire had suffered a single shotgun wound to the head, a post-mortem examination found.
Jordan Banton, 23, from Rugby, was found on Friday in a car near the village of Newton, north east of Rugby.
The post-mortem test comes as police examine a Vauxhall Insignia car which they believe was used by the gunman.
The vehicle was found in the Hilmorton area of Rugby on Sunday after police issued a picture of it.
Warwickshire Police said the car had made off from the scene along Newton Road and into Newton village and then to the A5.
Officers said it was a "targeted incident" and the victim's car had been forced off the road and into a ditch.
A 19-year-old man from the Rugby area was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of murder. On Monday, police said magistrates had given them a further 28 hours to question him.
Two men in their 30s, arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, have been bailed.
A woman arrested on Friday, has been released with no further action being taken.
