Three more people have been arrested after a man was shot dead in a car in a country lane in Warwickshire.

Jordan Banton, 23, from Rugby, was found in a car on Friday with a gunshot wound to his head near the village of Newton, north east of Rugby.

Two men, aged 28 and 34 from Rugby, were arrested in Cardiff on Monday on suspicion of murder, police said. A third, aged 27, was held on Tuesday.

A teenager from Rugby, arrested on Saturday, is still in custody.

Two men in their 30s, arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, were bailed on Monday.

A woman arrested on Friday was released with no further action being taken.

Warwickshire Police said the shooting was a "targeted incident" and that Mr Banton's car had been forced off the road and into a ditch.
