Witness Appeal

Shooting near parkland in Bushbury, Wolverhampton

Details of Incident

Investigators are appealing for witnesses to come forward after we recovered a second car following a shooting near parkland in Bushbury, Wolverhampton on Monday 1st May 2023.


We believe three cars - a red and black Mini, a dark grey Ford Focus and a small black hatchback - left Shelley Road shortly after shots were fired there at about 3.10pm.


We understand that they were then involved in a chase around the Bushbury area of the city.  And we're asking any drivers who were in Wolverhampton on Monday afternoon, especially in Bushbury and Low Hill, to check their dashcam, as they may have footage which will assist with our enquiries.


Tuesday evening (2nd May) we recovered the Focus after it was abandoned in Bushbury Lane. We believe it had been stolen in Wolverhampton on 29 April.


On Monday evening we also recovered the abandoned Mini from Third Avenue. Both cars have been seized and will undergo forensic examinations.


The two youngsters who were injured, a 15-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl, remain stable in hospital today.


We know how upsetting an incident like this is and our neighbourhood officers are out on patrols to offer reassurance to residents, parents and schools in the area.


We will not tolerate violence like this on our streets and our teams are focused on establishing who is responsible and bringing them to justice.
