Investigation launched following shooting on Westhorpe Grove

We’re investigating a shooting that happened in Birmingham last night (22 September). 
 
Shots were fired from a dark coloured car on Westhorpe Grove just before 7.30pm.
 
We believe that someone was injured, but so far haven’t been able to find them. Reports suggest they ran off in the direction of Mosborough Crescent and were picked up in a car.
 
Local hospitals have been alerted and we’re doing everything we can to locate the victim and everyone else involved.
 
Detectives and forensic scene investigators are carrying out enquiries in Mosborough Crescent, Westhorpe Grove and Great King Street this morning (Thursday).

CCTV is being reviewed as we try to piece together exactly what happened.
