Victim of fatal shooting is named

A man who died following a shooting in Birmingham has been named as Tyrone Dorsett.

Detectives have launched a murder investigation after the 20-year-old was found with a gun wound shot to the back in South Holme at just after 12am on Sunday (15 April).


The family of Tyrone, from Shropshire, have today described him as ’much-loved’ and say he will be ’sorely missed.’

In a statement they said: “Tyrone was a wonderful son, brother and a devoted boyfriend.

“He was very much loved by his family, friends and touched the lives of many.

“He will be sorely missed and our hearts are broken. We ask the press to please respect our wishes so we can grieve in private.”

Detective Inspector Warren Hines, from West Midlands Police, said: “My thoughts are with Tyrone’s family and loved ones at this time.

“I am determined to find out who is responsible for this murder, there is no place for gun crime in Birmingham and the misery that it causes. We are following a number of lines of enquiry.”
