Three Arrested After Teen Shot In Birmingham
Three men have been arrested as police continue to investigate a shooting in south Birmingham.
Officers first became aware of the incident yesterday evening (17 August) when a man went to hospital with a gunshot wound to his stomach.
Inquiries led officers to a flat in Rubery where the 17-year-old victim is believed to have been shot.
Two 19-year-olds from Rednal and Frankley have been arrested along with a 33-year-old.
