Investigation continues after shots fired in Bordesley Green
We are continuing to investigate after shots were fired at two properties in Bordesley Green overnight on Wednesday.
Properties in Yardley Green Road and Churchill Road were shot at within 30 minutes of each other. Thankfully no-one was hurt although damage was caused to both houses.
We believe that both addresses were targeted so there is no threat to the wider community, but we have stepped up our patrols in the area as a precaution.
Last night we checked vehicles in the area conducting several searches, and this will continue into the weekend to reassure residents that we will not tolerate violence on our streets.
Inspector Amir Abid, from Birmingham East Police said: “We understand that these were alarming incidents which create fear among residents and I would urge anyone to has any information about who was responsible to contact us. In the meantime, if anyone would like to speak to us about their concerns in Bordesley Green please get in touch with my team.”
