Crimestoppers Reward After Double Shooting In Birmingham

10th November 2018

From Crimestoppers:
We're putting up a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for shooting two teenage boys in Victoria Road, Handsworth on Friday 2 November.
The boys, aged 14 and 15, were knocking at the door of a family home in Victoria Road at around 8.15 p.m. when a shot was fired from a vehicle. There were about ten young children in the house at the time of the incident, including a baby.

The bullet, fired from a dark coloured vehicle, hit the older boy in the chest and exited through his back, narrowly missing vital organs. It went on to hit the younger boy, and lodged in his stomach.

As an independent charity , we're now offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
 
Pauline Hadley, Crimestoppers West Midlands Regional Manager, said: "We believe everyone has the right to feel safe from crime, whether in their home, place of work or whilst walking in the street. To have someone shot outside of their home is extremely worrying.
 
"Did you see a car that looked suspicious between 8.00 and 8.15 p.m.? Maybe one that went back and forth in the area? Were you driving around Victoria Road? Do you have dashcam footage?

"Whoever did this could shoot at someone else in your community. You can stop that from happening. We need to prevent any further danger to the community and are therefore putting up a reward to encourage anyone who knows who was involved, to come forward.
 
"Everyone who contacts us stays 100% anonymous. Always. When you call our UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111 or use our online form here on our website, no one will ever know who you are - even us.

***Note: Information passed directly to police will not qualify. The reward will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 number or via our non-traceable anonymous online form ***
