Police release CCTV in appeal to find riders involved in Quinton shooting

West Midlands Police have released images of three people they would like to speak to in connection with a drive-by shooting in Quinton.

At around 5.45pm on Sunday 10 September, shots were fired towards a white Lexus as it travelled along Quinton Road West by a masked rider of a scrambler-style e-bike. The masked riders of two other scrambler style e-bikes were also involved in the incident.

Following extensive enquiries, they have released images of three peoplethey would like to speak to and are asking people to come forward to help identify them. The Police said they know the images are not clear, but were hoping people's memories will be jogged or that they will be known locally.

In addition, they are also appealing to the occupants of the Lexus to come forward to tell us what they know about the incident. Detective Inspector Michelle Cordell, from the Major Crime Team, said:

"We continue to work hard to understand the circumstances leading up to this incident. This happened in broad daylight, and on a main arterial route.

"This incident is truly shocking and we will do everything we can to bring those responsible to justice. “We are pursuing several leads and are checking CCTV in and around the surrounding areas to understand what took place, where it began and how it culminated in the incident on Quinton Road West.

“We appeal to anyone who thinks they have information about the incident to make contact with us.

"We would also ask anyone who lives, visits or has businesses in and around the surrounding areas to check their cameras to see if they've picked up any footage that could help our investigation.

"We have also created an online portal where people can submit phone, dashcam or ring doorbell footage. You can submit any footage directly to us.

 “We are aware of another reported incident which took place on Saturday afternoon in Ridgmond Croft but at this stage, we are not treating the incidents as connected”.

Local policing Inspector Jason Wathes added: "I want to reassure people that we have put additional resources from our traffic and priority crime team into the area and will be conducting operations to tackle issues that are impacting people locally.

"Our overall crime figures for the year shows that we have reduced offences in the area by almost a quarter, but we appreciate that the community will be really concerned by what happened on Sunday.

"Over the next few weeks we will be arranging a community meeting where people can speak to us directly and tell us about their concerns.

"If anyone is affected by crime or anti-social behaviour we would also encourage you to contact us and report it. You can do this by calling us on 101 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
