Appeal after shots fired at car in Wolverhampton

We're investigating after shots were fired at a car in a Wolverhampton street last night (20 Sept).

Two gun shots were discharged towards a black VW Golf in Ashland Street, Pennfields, just before 11pm.

We don’t believe anyone was injured and we suspect the shooting was targeted.

Detectives are reviewing CCTV and carrying out other enquiries. We'll continue to have visible patrols in the area and anybody with concerns can speak to our officers.

We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw a group of males riding push bikes in the area in the build-up to the shooting.

If you saw anything suspicious or were driving in the area at the time and have dash-cam footage then please get in touch.

Anyone with information is asked to contact us via Live Chat and quote log 4429 of 20 September. Or you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
