Police say they seized what is believed to be a firearm at the scene of a shooting in Ronkswood. 

Police shot a man in the leg at Ronkswood Hill, off Newtown Road on the morning of Saturday, October 2.

Officers were called to the road after reports of a person in a car with a firearm.

However, no information on whether a firearm was ever recovered from the scene had previously been released.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police, said: "We can confirm what is believed to be a firearm was seized at the scene.

"Our enquiries are continuing and at the current time no-one has been charged.

"The man who was shot remains in hospital."

The Independent Office for Police Conduct previously confirmed that the man had sustained "serious but not life-threatening injuries".

The matter has been referred to the IOPC which will carry out an investigation into the incident and the discharge of a police firearm.

We previously reported how a forensic team spent the weekend of the shooting investigating a white BMW in Ronkswood Hill.

A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
