Appeal after shots were fired at house in Walsall

We’re appealing for information after shots were fired at a property in Birchills, Walsall, last night (17 July).
It happened in Pargeter Street at around 11.50pm, fortunately no one was injured.
It’s currently thought to be a targeted attack, however detectives and local officers are working hard to understand more about what happened and why. 

We understand how frightening this is for those involved and for people nearby.
Incidents like this are rare and we’re doing all we can to find those responsible as firearms have no place on our streets.
But we need your help, did you see anything? Have you any CCTV or dashcam footage?
Local officers are conducting a trawl of CCTV and are speaking to potential witnesses. We’d urge anyone who has any information and not yet spoken to us to contact us.
You can do this by speaking to officers who are in the area today, you can contact us via live chat on our website, or call us on 101. Please quote crime reference number 20/1363515/21.
Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Tell them what you know, not who you are.
