Three men have been arrested as police continue to investigate a shooting in south Birmingham.

Officers first became aware of the incident yesterday evening (17 August) when a man went to hospital with a gunshot wound to his stomach. 

Inquiries led officers to a flat in Rubery where the 17-year-old victim is believed to have been shot.

Two 19-year-olds from Rednal and Frankley have been arrested along with a 33-year-old.

Detective Chief Inspector Sean Russell, from West Midlands Police said: "The investigation is still in its early stages but so far three men have been arrested and a car and suspected drugs have also been seized.

"We have spoken to local people, identified CCTV which may have captured the shooting on camera and forensic scene investigators have been working hard in their search for clues.”

The 17-year-old remains in a critical condition in hospital as he recovers from major surgery on his wounds
