West Midlands Police are investigating after reports of gunshots being fired in a Harborne street yesterday evening (Thursday 1st December).

Officers attended Croftdown Road, close to the Lordswood Road junction, at 11.30pm after reports of shots being fired.

A woman presented herself at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Edgbaston with arm injuries a short time later.

A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “The injuries are not life-threatening and it appears to have been a targeted attack.”

The road remained closed for some time today while forensic experts examined the area during daylight hours.

Any witnesses, or anyone who has information which they think may assist investigating officers, is urged to call 101. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
