A teenager has been shot dead in a Birmingham street.

A man, 22, has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the 18-year-old was found in St Marks Crescent, Ladywood, at 18:45 GMT on Thursday.

The victim, named locally as Kenichi Phillips, was from Birmingham but had moved away, said police.

It is the fourth fatal shooting in the city since October, but “it is too early to speculate if it was gang-related,” said Det. Supt. Mark Payne.

“There were a group of people in the street we want to come forward.”
