A 24-year-old man and 17-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of wounding after a six-year-old boy was injured in a shooting.
Officers from West Midlands Police believe a group of men fired shots at a house in Ashbourne Road in the Eastfield area of Wolverhampton at around 4pm on Friday.
The injured boy, who was in the property at the time, remains in hospital in a stable condition.
The arrested men remain in custody, West Midlands Police said.
Detective Inspector Rod Rose said: “These arrests are a significant step forward in our investigation which continues at pace.
“It’s a shocking incident where someone has opened fire with a shotgun in broad daylight.
“The motive of this attack remains unclear and we’re working hard to try and understand what happened earlier today.”
