Police have arrested two more people in connection with the murder of 19-year-old Aya Hachem, including one man who was detained in Spain at the weekend.

Spanish police arrested a 30-year-old man from Manchester in Fuengirola on Saturday after a European arrest warrant was issued.

He is being held on suspicion of Aya’s murder as well as the attempted murder of the man officers believe was the intended target of the shooting.

Aya was killed by a single gun shot wound on Sunday May 17 while she was walking home from Lidl along King Street in Blackburn.

The man is currently subject to the extradition process so he can be brought back to Lancashire and be charged with the offences.

Earlier on Tuesday a 33-year-old Manchester man was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, after warrants were executed at addresses on Grasmere Road and Moss Lane in Partington, Manchester.

Searches are on-going at those properties.

The total number of people arrested in connection with Aya’s death now stands at 21.

Of these, seven people have been charged with her murder and the attempted murder of the intended target of the shooting.

Two people have been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Eight people have been released under investigation.

Two people are in custody (one of those is in Spain), and two people have been released without charge.

Police continue to remind people that information or video footage in relation to this inquiry can still be sent to them via the major incident public portal at mipp.police.uk/operation/0401020120E05-PO1
