A man who killed his brother and a rival gang member with a crossbow has been in prison for at least 33 years.

Saghawat Ramzan killed Khuzaimah Douglas after accidentally injuring his brother Waseem Ramzan after stealing the family’s cannabis plant.

Saghawat, his son Omar Ramzan and Mohammed Sageer were imprisoned for life at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

The three men were unanimously convicted of the murder of Mr. Douglas.

Saghawat Ramzan, 47, was also convicted of killing his younger brother, while the other defendants were convicted of manslaughter.

CCTV footage

CCTV footage was shown at the trial since Saghawat Ramzan’s crossbow shot his brother in the stomach to kill or maim Mr. Douglas in a four-to-one punishment.

A second lightning bolt at a speed of 270 feet per second was fired at Mr. Douglas less than a minute later, causing fatal injuries.

Douglas, 19, was shot to the ground and died in the early hours of February 20 last year at the crime scene in front of Ramzan’s home on Pensnett Road in Brierley Hill, Dudley.

Waseem Ramzan, 36, died in hospital after the lightning that struck him was removed and hidden near the scene.

The defendants were charged with murder after police restored CCTV footage from cameras designed to protect the cannabis farm from raids by rival gangs.

All three denied having knowledge of the farm. Saghawat Ramzan said he was concerned that burglars would attack his home with Cartier and Rolex watches.

Omar Ramzan, 24, a former KPMG accountant and Lancaster University graduate, had a minimum 22-year term.

Family friend Sageer, 33, of Gorsty Avenue in Brierley Hill, was ordered to serve at least 20 years before he could be considered for parole.

Judge Michael Chambers QC, who sentenced him, said it was clear that all three and Waseem Ramzan knew about the cannabis farm.

The judge said: “When you tried to protect him from attack by a rival criminal group, you caught one of the attackers trying to escape.

“They really wanted to hurt him.

“It was a really terrifying episode of violence in every way to protect a criminal enterprise by calling for retaliation and trying to discourage others.”
