Wolverhampton shooting Haughton

A man shot dead in Wolverhampton on Friday has been named as 24-year-old Dwaine Haughton.

He was in Valley Road, Park Village, at 9.10pm when he was shot in what West Midlands Police detectives understand was a targeted attack.

He was pronounced dead in hospital in the early hours of Saturday and a post-mortem examination confirmed he died from a gunshot wound.

A tribute on behalf of Mr Haughton's family and partner described him as "caring, loving and thoughtful" and said he would have made the "perfect father".

It reads: "You have left a big hole in all of our hearts. We will forever miss your beautiful cheeky smile and infectious laugh. Love and miss you son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin.

"You were the most caring loving and thoughtful boyfriend and would have been the most perfect husband and father.

"We love you more than words can show, I think about you more than you could ever know. Until forever this will be true, because there is no one I would ever love the way I love you.

"If tears could build a staircase and memories a lane I'd ride up to heaven and bring you home again."
