A man killed in a drive-by attack in Nottingham may have been the victim of mistaken identity, detectives say.

Marvyn Bradshaw, 22, was leaving a pub in the Top Valley area of Nottingham by car when he was shot on Sunday morning.

Nottinghamshire Police believe a single shot was fired into the car in which Mr Bradshaw was travelling with three friends.

His family have told police that he was wrongly targeted by his killer.

Police say he was not involved in gun or drug crime and they believe his death may have been a case of mistaken identity.

Mr Bradshaw was killed at about 0400 BST on 31 August as he left the Sporting Chance at the Goose Fair pub on Hucknall Road.
