Three teens charged over Wolverhampton shooting

West Midlands Police has charged three teenagers over a shooting in which a man suffered gunshot wounds to his foot.

The victim – a man in his 30s – was shot in Joan Street, Wolverhampton, at around 5pm on Tuesday evening (21 May).

He was treated in hospital for injuries consistent with a shotgun discharge but is due to soon be released.

West Midlands Police arrested four people shortly after the shooting – and last night three were charged with possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.
