A 26-year-old man, who was arrested at the scene of the shooting has since been released without charge and two other men, aged 29 and 36, have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Detective Superintendent Tom Davies, from East Midlands Major Crime Unit, said: "This continues to be a dynamic investigation and we're still seeking the assistance of the public with any information about this incident.
"This is devastating for the family. Hayley's death has left two young children without a mother and it is vital that those involved are dealt with.
"We are still keen to speak to anyone who saw two men in the area at the time of the incident. The men, who both had their hoods up, are said to have left the scene in a dark car that was parked in the street.
"If you were in the area or you have any information about the incident or the events leading up to it please come forward."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555111.
