Investigation underway after a man was shot in Bartley Green.

Detectives are investigating a shooting in Bartley Green on Sunday afternoon (30/04) that left a man in hospital with a gun-shot wound to his arm.

Emergency services were called at around 4.15PM from a member of the public reporting what they believed was the sound of a gunshot in Parkside near the junction with Clapgate Lane.

Armed officers responded minutes later and found two vehicles abandoned; a VW Golf and Corsa have been recovered for forensic examination. The scene has been cordoned off for a fingertip search of the area.

It’s understood three offenders fled the scene on foot and efforts are ongoing to trace them.

A man, aged 29, later presented himself to hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm – his injury is not life threatening. It’s understood the man was walking in Parkside at the time of the incident and that he was deliberately targeted.

Please call WMP on 101 if you have ANY information.
