Detectives appeal for information after drive-by shooting
Detectives are continuing to appeal for information this morning after a 20-year old-man was killed in a drive-by shooting in Erdington last night (Thursday 8 August).
It is believed that a shot was fired by the occupants of a dark-coloured vehicle at approximately 7:20pm, which entered Goosemoor Lane from Gravelly Lane.
Officers are trawling CCTV and speaking to witnesses but anyone who has any information or dash-cam footage of a dark coloured car in the area is urged to get in touch.
Detective Chief Inspector Scott Griffiths, from Force CID, said: “Another young man has been robbed of his life and his family left devastated by his loss. Officers are supporting them after such shocking news.
“This was a heinous act of violence and my team have worked through the night to secure evidence from the scene and fast-track our enquiries, but I need anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to contact us.
“We have extra officers in the area through today and into the weekend to offer reassurance to the local community.”
