Evidence shows shotgun fired on Halesowen street
Police are appealing for information after shots were fired in a residential Black Country street.
West Midlands Police have now confirmed they believe two shots were fired from a shotgun in Thatchers Barn Drive, Halesowen, where residents reported hearing two loud bangs in the early hours of Monday.
Officers sealed off the cul-de-sac off Long Lane after the bangs were reported at around 3.10am.
No-one was injured in the incident but police have since found evidence of a shotgun being fired and also believe a car left the area soon afterwards.
The incident was the second Black Country shooting in less than 12 hours after a man was seriously injured by a shotgun in a barber shop in Walsall.
