The two-minute silence will be held in The Meadows
A two-minute silence will be held to remember the latest victim of gun crime in Nottingham.

Nathan Williams, 17, was shot dead in at a shopping precinct in the Meadows area of the city at lunchtime on Tuesday.

Reverend Glyn Jones, of St Saviours Church, said the memorial silence would be held at noon on Friday.

He said the silence was "a pledge by the community to continue to make the Meadows a better place to live".

"We would like to see people of all faiths from all over the community to come in respect for Nathan," he said.

"It is a chance for people to say, 'We want to continue to make the Meadows a good place - because it is - and also be gun -free'."

Nottinghamshire police are still investigating the fatal shooting, which was the first in the city in 18 months.

Police are searching for a BMX bike Mr Williams was riding at the time of the shooting and later apparently stolen by the killer.

For anyone unable to attend the memorial service, it will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Nottingham from noon on Friday.
