– Chief Superintendent Alex Murray, west midlands police
We believe this may have been a targeted attack which happened in a busy pub in broad daylight this afternoon.
At this stage we do not believe this is connected with any other incident ...
This would have been a shocking incident for witnesses and will have a huge impact on the local community.
I want to reassure residents that we are working hard to find the person responsible for this attack and are following a number of lines of inquiry at this early stage.
A murder investigation has been launched after a man was killed in what police believe was a targeted shooting at a pub in Cockshut Hill, Birmingham on Friday evening.
