It followed ongoing enquiries into an incident in Bertram Road, Smethwick, on January 12 last year when shots were fired towards a shop, injuring two men in their 40s. Their injuries were not serious.

Police also detained 26-year-old Azeem Hussain, of Miner Street, Walsall following a flight into the country last month.
