Two men have been shot and killed at an industrial site in the West Midlands, police have said.

The shooting is the third in three days in the area, after a man was seriously injured nearby on Tuesday, and bullets were fired towards a college on Monday.

In the latest shooting two men, who are yet to be formally identified, were found dead in a parked car just before 3.30pm on Wednesday.

It is thought they were killed at industrial units in Brierley Hill, West Midlands, just after 1pm and both were pronounced dead at the scene.

A double murder investigation has been launched and West Midlands Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said they were called to the scene at 3.30pm.

A spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two male patients, both of whom were inside a car, it is believed they had been there for some time.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent nothing could be done to save either of them and they were confirmed dead at the scene.”
