Gunmen opened fire in two Wolverhampton streets today as police revealed tensions were mounting between rival gangs in the city.

17:02 |

One man was shot in the leg in Whitmore Reans and bullets were fired at a house in Park Village shortly after midnight. Armed police were this afternoon at New Cross Hospital guarding the 23-year-old, who was “comfortable”.He was shot in Glaisdale Gardens. At around the same time, shocked neighbours heard two shots being fired at a house two miles away in Monsal Avenue.
Both streets remained cordoned off this afternoon as detectives searched for evidence. Police are trying to establish what has triggered the apparent escalation of hostility between gangs.
Ch Insp Richard Fisher, from Wolverhampton Police, said patrols had been stepped up across the city.
“We are under no illusion there are tensions between gangs in the city at this time,” he said.
“However, I would like to be very clear that we are making every effort to reduce these tensions.
“Although rare, we do not underestimate the impact any incident involving guns has on communities.
“We will continue to take action against those who think they can intimidate others with guns.”
Neighbours today spoke of their shock. One woman living in Glaisdale Garden said she heard two bangs, while a woman from Monsal Avenue added: “I was in bed when I heard two bangs from outside. It’s not a nice thing to happen.”
The incidents are the latest in a string of shootings in the city. A gun is thought to have been fired outside the Bagot Arms in Newhampton Road West, Whitmore Reans, last Friday, while  a Fiat Punto was found with a bullet hole in the windscreen in nearby Staveley Road on February 4.:Text may be subject to copyright.This blog does not claim copyright to any such text.
