An investigation has been launched after shots were fired at a kabab house in Handsworth on Tuesday night (31/10).

Police, including armed officers, were dispatched, at around 10:50PM, to reports of a firearm discharge at Spices kebab house on Soho Road.

No-one was injured in the take-away and enquiries are underway; a car found crashed nearby has been recovered by police and will be forensically examined.

Chief Inspector Colin Mattinson from West Midlands Police Force CID, said: “We’re working hard to establish exactly what happened.

“It’s believed shots were fired into the take-away. No-one was hurt in the shop and enquiries have been made with regional hospitals to see if anyone has presented with injuries consistent with a firearm discharge. No victims have been identified.

“If anyone saw what happened, or was in the area at the time and saw a vehicle speeding away from the scene, I’d urge them to get in touch.”

Armed police arrived at the scene within minutes of the shooting and the area was sealed off to preserve evidence. Soho Road is expected to remain closed until mid-afternoon to allow for a thorough forensic examination.

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police’s Investigation Team at Perry Barr police station on 101 quoting log number 3254 31/10.
