Mother Killed In Hinckley Shooting Named
A mother-of-two killed in a shooting in Leicestershire has been named by police.
Hayley Pointon, 30, died from a single gunshot wound at an address in Hinckley on Sunday night.
Police leading the investigation have appealed for witnesses who may have seen two hooded men nearby at the time of the shooting.
Detective Superintendent Tom Davies said: "Hayley's death has left two young children without a mother and it is vital that those involved are dealt with.
"We are still keen to speak to anyone who saw two men in the area at the time.
"The men both had their hoods up and were said to have left the scene in a dark car that was parked in the street.
"If you were in the area or you have any information about the incident or the events leading up to it, please come forward."
Three men have so far been arrested in connection with the shooting, including a 26-year-old man who has been released without charge.
The other two, who are aged 29 and 36, have been released on bail pending further investigation. Ms Pointon was from the Coventry area.
:: Anyone with information is urged to call Leicestershire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

what do you think?
Death penalty required and quick, our justice system promotes crime. Eastern Europeans coming in Dec. The Great EU, what Hitler and Napoleon could not do, faceless grey people can.
These 'hoody' forms of clothing should be banned as they are like any other form of masking used by criminals. Not only should we bring back the death penalty we must close our borders to anyone who cannot prove that they have work before being allowed in. We only see this in the papers a few days ago as we are harbouring dozens of aliens who are wanted across the world for various very serious crimes that are a threat to our safety let alone the security of the UK. I also would like to see CCTV everywhere and anyone who doesn't like CCTV has something to hide!
Totally agree I have no problem with cctv. Close the gates now if you don't have job and money don't bother. Even then they are taking jobs from British people
