Floral tributes to a Worcestershire sub-postmaster's son who was killed during an armed robbery have poured in as detectives pledged a "relentless" investigation into the murder.
Craig Hodson-Walker was shot in the chest on Friday morning as he tried to fend off four masked raiders at Fairfield Post Office and Stores in Fairfield.
The 29-year-old lived and worked at the village Post Office alongside his parents Ken and Judy, both 56. His father remains in a stable condition in hospital following surgery after he was shot in the leg during the attack.
The gang, who were armed with a sledgehammer and a handgun, remain at large as forensic experts are continuing their work at the scene.
Detective Superintendent Jon Groves, who is leading the investigation, said: "We have several important lines of inquiry that we are progressing and we will be relentless in our efforts to identify those responsible for Craig's death and for injuring his father, Ken Hodson-Walker."
He added: "We are very pleased with the response so far, but I cannot emphasise enough how important it is that people continue to come forward with information - no matter how insignificant it seems."
A police cordon, which had previously prevented motorists from driving past the Stourbridge Road store, has now been lifted and only the shop itself remains taped off. Two uniformed officers remain on guard at the scene of the shooting and the police presence has been noticeably stepped up in the area.
Grief-stricken neighbours and friends of the family left flowers next to a wall in front of the property, handing notes of condolence and cards to police officers for relatives to read in private.
