POLICE continue to appeal for information after shots were fired at a man in Sheldon.

There were reports of a shotgun being used by two men on a motorbike on Coventry Road, near the junction with Coalway Avenue, at 10:15pm on Friday (August 31).

The shots were fired at the driver of a black Land Rover Freelander who had got out of the vehicle.

The car was found abandoned against traffic lights and there were no signs of anyone being injured.

Police want to hear from anyone with information to come forward.

DI Richard Marsh said: “We are determined to tackle gun crime and we need the help of the public who are our eyes and ears.

“Even though we are unaware of anyone being injured we do not tolerate guns being fired discharged on our streets.

“This would have been a frightening experience for people in the area at the time and we would urge them to help us catch those responsible.”

Anyone with information should contact via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am to 9pm, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting log 2707 of 31/08/18.
