Abdul Rahman shot dead during a street barbecue on Stratford Place, in the Highgate area of Birmingham




Police have launched a murder probe after a man, believed to be aged in his 20s, was gunned down in Birmingham last night.

The man, named locally as Abdul Rahman, was shot in the chest during a street barbecue on Stratford Place, in the Highgate area of Birmingham, at around 11pm on Tuesday.

He was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Officers taped off a large area outside the timber framed property and forensics were at the scene carrying out investigations.


It is believed Mr Rahman, who lives in Small Heath, had recently graduated with a masters in business from Wolverhampton University and had also recently opened a dessert shop on Ladypool Road, Birmingham, along with his brother.

Tributes have poured in for the ‘hard-working, loving and empathetic’ victim on social media from friend and family.

Wakas Khalid wrote on social media: ‘I Woke Up To The News Of My Good Brother Abdul Rahman Who Passed Away Last Night. Wallah I Am Deeply Saddened And Emotional.’

‘Cannot believe it man just yesterday I put a post up saying I wish we all make it to Ramadan it was only a day away, little did I know that someone I knew would be the 1 being taken away so soon this is y the day life isn’t guaranteed make right with those you have wronged and live life with the fear of the here after.’

Another friend wrote on Facebook: “Heartbroken isn’t the word. I’ve got a million things to say to praise you.

“I knew you so well and your heart was made of gold.”

Residents said a group of around 30 or 40 people had gathered on the area outside the property for a barbecue.

One said: “There was a big group of people and they were playing loud music and having a barbecue. They were just enjoying themselves having a bit of a party.

“My neighbour said people were running away from the scene. It’s really shocking. I didn’t know anything had happened until this morning.”

Another neighbour added: “I called the police about 10pm because there were about 30 or 40 of them having a barbecue and probably doing a video for Instagram.

“I popped my head round and they were jumping up and down videoing themselves.

Chief Superintendent Mark Payne said: “We understand the victim was in or near Stratford Place last night when he was shot.

“The details are unclear at this early stage and I would appeal to anyone who was at the location and may have heard and seen anything to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101, or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
