And no arrests have yet been made after the victim was shot in Hughes Avenue on April 3.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "No arrests made as yet and victim remains in a serious but stable condition."

It was the third of three firearms incidents in the Black Country last week, as two men were arrested on March 29 and later bailed after reports of a shooting in Wolverhampton and two men, aged 19 and 20, were injured in a double shooting in Bearwood on March 31.

West Midlands Police has since said they do not believe the incidents were connected.
