Police: Shooting may have been 'targeted attack'

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.

– Chief Superintendent Alex Murray, west midlands police
