Three men have been jailed for life after two men were brutally killed with a crossbow during a cannabis farm burglary in Brierley Hill.

Saghawat Ramzan, his son Omar Ramzan, and Mohammed Sageer claimed they acted in self-defence when they brutally killed 19-year-old Khuzaimah Douglas and Saghawat’s own brother, 36-year-old Waseem Ramzan. The Ramzan’s lived next door to their professional and lucrative cannabis factory in Pensnett Road, Brierley Hill. 

Commenting on the burglary gone wrong Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro, from the homicide team, said, “The actions of these three men were shocking, brutal and calculated. To protect their cannabis grow, they were happy to use extreme violence in a brutal and sustained attack on Khuzaimah. 

“We believe they wanted to send a clear message to the people who’d attempted to rob their cannabis factory. However, Saghawat also killed his own brother during the attack which further highlights their determination to cause serious harm and just how dangerous their weapons were.

“Two lives have been lost because these men decided to use extreme violence in an attempt to protect their illegal drug business."
