A teenager has been injured after being shot in Coventry.

The emergency services were called to Far Gosford Street on the outskirts of the city centre, following the incident last night (Friday, October 16).

According to West Midlands Police, the 18-year-old male victim was sat in a Vauxhall Corsa when he was shot.

The incident is believed to have taken place at around 11.45pm.

A short while later, the victim turned up at hospital, where he is being treated for an arm injury.

West Midlands Police have said that they believe the person responsible arrived and left the scene in a car, adding that "there is absolutely no justification for an attack like this in our society".

At this time, no arrests have been made and police are appealing for witnesses.

A police cordon has been in place on Far Gosford Street this morning, with many local businesses taking to social media to reassure customers that they remain open at this time.
