Man Shot In Birmingham Drive-By Shooting
Police have told Heart they believe a drive-by shooting in Birmingham was a targeted attack.
A 19-year-old is in hospital with gunshot wounds to his leg and back after the shooting in Lozells Road.
Police say he's in a stable condition after they don't believe there is a threat to the wider community.
It is thought at this early stage that the shooting was a targeted attack and there is no threat to the wider community.
Inspector Richard Marsh, from Force CID, is currently leading the investigation. He said: "We’re very keen to hear from anyone who has information about those responsible.
"There may be people out there who feel uneasy about coming forward. I would reassure those individuals we have a range of special measures that we can use to support them."
Insp. Marsh added: "Firearms have no place on the streets of Birmingham. There must be no let-up in our approach to tackle gun crime and it remains an absolute priority for us.
The Chief Constable of West Midlands Police has warned forces across the UK are at breaking point because of funding cuts.
All of the more than 200 tower blocks in Birmingham are going to be fitted with sprinkler systems.
A 15 year old boy's died while swimming in a lake in the Black Country.
