Police were called to Broad Street after reports of disorder and gunfire in the early hours of Sunday morning.

But the force found a woman who was attacked in the head with what is thought to be a machete.

The woman, in her 30s, was taken to hospital but her injuries are not life-threatening, West Midlands Police said.

A shell casing was found but no-one is believed to have been injured by the gunfire.

A 36-year-old was arrested on suspicion of wounding, but has now been released.

A police spokeswoman said: "The woman arrested has been released on police bail pending further enquiries."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via Live Chat at between 8am and midnight or call 101 anytime quoting log number 104 of 14/7/19.
