CCTV shows the moment the taxi boss was executed in a drive-by shooting on his birthday after a family dispute
Chilling CCTV captures the moment a taxi driver was executed in a drive-by shooting on his birthday amid a bitter feud between feuding families.
Two thugs have been jailed for murder after Mohammed Haroon Zeb, 39, died in Dudley, West Midlands, on his birthday in January 2021 after suffering a head injury.
A court heard the taxi company manager had just stopped outside his home when he was attacked by thugs Gurdeep Sandhu and Hassan Tasleem.
Shocking video footage shows a Volkswagen Golf slowing before flashes can be seen from the passenger window while Tasleem fired a total of five shots.
Father of four, Mohammed – known as H – was taken to hospital but nothing could be done to save him and he was pronounced dead later in the day.

A court heard that Muhammad was killed as a result of a three-year tit for tat feud between two warring family groups.
The ongoing disagreements had resulted in people being run over by cars, fights breaking out in the streets and even a man being stabbed to death.
However, Mohammed was not believed to have been actively involved in the feud and detectives say the reason he was attacked is unknown.
Eight men were charged with conspiracy to murder and were tried at Loughborough Crown Court last year.
Sandhu and Tasleem, both 23 and from Dudley, were convicted of murder for possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and pervert the course of justice.
A third man, 21-year-old Shamraz Ali, also of Dudley, was found guilty of perversity after the three-month trial.
On Thursday, Tasleem and Sandhu were both sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 30 years each, while Ali was sentenced to five years.
The trial heard the fatal blow came from a fatal revolver fired from the Golf’s passenger seat, but the gun was never found.

The vehicle was on false plates and disappeared from radar until later recovered in Telford, Shropshire.
Officers then searched the CCTV and searched social media and phone records to connect the couple to the murder, which happened on January 31, 2021.
Detectives determined that the gun was in the hands of Tasleem at the time, while Sandhu was the driver of the car and involved in the conspiracy.
Footage released by police after the sentencing also shows the killers changing the car’s license plates just before the fatal shooting.
The family of Mohammed, son of the chairman of the Dudley Central Mosque, paid tribute to the convictions.

They said: “For almost two years we have struggled as a family to accept the loss of our Haroon.
“We thank the police for their tireless efforts.”
West Midlands Police Detective Superintendent Jim Munro added: “This was a carefully planned murder and children have lost their father forever.
“Nothing can ever ease this pain.
“We can only hope that these convictions will take some dangerous men off the streets and that ongoing policing will put an end to this violence.
“We are grateful to the Dudley community for assisting us with this investigation.”
