Investigation After Birmingham Shooting
An investigation has been launched after a man was taken to hospital following a shooting in Birmingham.
Emergency services were called to Holliday Road, at the junction with Marrowfat Lane, Handsworth at 4.15pm on October 30th after gun shots were fired outside an address.
The man was taken to a Birmingham hospital with a gunshot wound to the legs. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
Detective Inspector Phil Asquith, from Force CID, said: "Detectives and local officers are currently at the scene as we launch a full inquiry into this afternoon’s events.
"Thankfully the man’s injuries are not believed to be life threatening, however we obviously need to trace those who find it acceptable to carry and use a loaded firearms on the streets of the West Midlands.
"We urge anyone who was in the area and may have seen the crime, or anyone leaving the scene, to contact us as soon as they can."
Police urge anyone with information to contact Force CID in Birmingham by dialling 101.
Holliday Road and surrounding streets are currently closed while police forensically examine the scene.
