Two teenage boys hurt in Birmingham city shooting
Two teenage boys have been hurt in a shooting in Birmingham.
A 15-year-old was shot in the back and a 14-year-old was hit in the arm in the incident in Handsworth on Friday night.
The older boy is in a serious but stable condition in hospital, while the younger boy was not thought to be seriously injured.
The gunshots are believed to have been fired from a car which left the scene in Victoria Road at about 20:15 GMT, West Midlands Police said.
Det Sgt Matt Marston said: "We are still piecing together the circumstances around what happened, but we will not tolerate anyone being shot, especially not teenagers."
The force's chief constable referred to the victims as "children" on Twitter.
The road has been cordoned off for a police investigation.
