Three arrested after firearms discharge in Birmingham street

We've arrested three men in connection with a shooting in a Birmingham street last night (9 Sept).

Armed police were sent to Bellefield Road, Winson Green, at 7.15pm following reports of a gunshot being heard and a group of men running from the scene.

Three men aged 26, 24 and 20 were arrested by our firearms officers in the street on suspicion of possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence. They remain in police custody.

Searches are being conducted in Bellefield Road in connection with the shooting and a section of the street remains cordoned off.

A man aged 22 later presented to hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg; we are working to understand how that man came to be injured and if it's connected to the same firearms discharge in Bellefield Road.
