Appeal after teenager shot in Hockley

We are appealing after a teenager was shot in Hockley Circus, Birmingham, shortly before 7pm last night (18 November). 

Our investigations are in the very early stages, but we understand the 13-year-old was walking down Hockley Circus  when he was shot in the back. 

He remains in hospital in a critical condition with injuries believed to be life-changing. 

Hockley Circus will remain closed for most of the morning as we conduct forensic enquiries. We thank you for your patience. 

We are urgently appealing to anyone in the area with any information. This is a busy area with lots of motorists, so we’re asking anyone with dashcams to check their footage as this may help us identify the people responsible. 

Also if you witnessed anything, please contact us as this information could provide integral to our investigation. 

Contact us via Live Chat on our website or by calling 101. Please quote log number 3589 of 18/11.

Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously via 0800 555 111.
