Two men have been convicted for the murder of a father-of-four in a drive-by shooting.

Hassan Tasleem, aged 25, of Dudley, was convicted of murder, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and perverting the course of justice.

Gurdeep Sandhu, also aged 25, of Dudley, was found guilty of the same charges following a three-month trial at Loughborough Crown Court.

Mohammed Haroon Zeb was shot outside his home in Dudley.

Known as Haroon, he was the manager of Midland Taxis in Brierley Hill.

He had pulled up outside his home in Queen’s Cross on January 31, 2021, when he was shot in a drive-by.

Police believe the fatal shot came from a revolver which is yet to be recovered.

Mr Zeb was rushed to hospital but died later that day.

During the investigation, police used social media, phone records and CCTV to help connect Tasleem and Sandhu to the crime.

It was found that Tasleem fired the weapon while Sandhu drove the get-away car just after 12:30 am.
