A 30-year-old man was tonight charged with the murders of three men who were hit by a car while protecting shops and homes from looters.
West Midlands Police said the man would appear in court tomorrow in connection with the deaths of Haroon Jahan, 21, and brothers Shazad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, who were killed in the early hours of August 10.
Mr Jahan’s father, Tariq, attempted to revive his son after hearing the car speed away from the scene in Dudley Road.
It comes after three men, aged 17, 23 and 26, appeared in court on Monday charged with their murder after the incident in the Winson Green area of Birmingham.
26-year-old Joshua Donald, 23-year-old Adam King and a 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were remanded in custody after a brief hearing at Birmingham Crown Court.
All three defendants are due to appear at the same court for a plea on December 9.
King, of no fixed abode, faced the court from the dock after being remanded in custody during a brief hearing at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court earlier on Monday. He was arrested and charged with three counts of murder on Sunday night.
