Three more men have been charged over a double shooting in which one man died and another was injured.

Derek Junior Myers was shot dead during disorder in Soho Hill, in Birmingham, last October. A second man remains critically injured in hospital.

Jerome Christie and Anthony Pinnock are accused of wounding and Martin Pinnock is charged with possessing a firearm.

The men, all from Birmingham, were due before magistrates in the city on Tuesday.

West Midlands Police said the charges against Mr Christie, 19, of Yardley Road, and Anthony Pinnock, 25, of Lodge Road, relate to the critically injured victim.

Mr Pinnock, 37, of Westbourne Road, is accused of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Two other men appeared at Birmingham Crown Court earlier.

Tafarwa Beckford, 33, from Ladywood, the step-brother of pop star Jamelia, is charged with Mr Myers' murder.

Rio Sanchez-Williams, 27, from Dudley, is accused of the attempted murder of the second man who was shot.

The pair, who were remanded in custody, are due to reappear at the same court on 17 June.
