A convicted Outlaws biker shot dead in a car in Nottinghamshire in October has been named by police as Robert E. “Bobo” Barker.

West Midlands Police confirmed that he was a 54-year-old from West Bromwich.

Police discovered a man suffering from gunshot wounds outside his car in Hewitt Road in Nottinghamshire on 25 October.

The 62-year-old driver and a woman who was in the car at the time were also found wounded and were taken to hospital.

Police believe the trio were shot while sitting in their car.

In November, police renewed appeals for anyone with information to come forward.

Witnesses and information related to this shooting are being sought. It is believed that at the time of the incident, a silver 4×4, similar to a Mercedes, was parked in Hewitt Road with the windows down, with loud music playing. It is being treated as a potential motive. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Incident Team via 0115 963 0777, quoting reference 4218088515.

The motive for the shooting was revealed to the BBC in October, but Nottinghamshire Police said it would not be releasing further details.

Outlaws biker gang member Robert “Bobby” Baker, 49, was found dead in a car in Birmingham after he was hit by a spray of bullets in September.
