Two arrested over Birmingham shooting

Two men have been arrested after an 18-year-old man was shot dead in the Newtown area of Birmingham during a 'serious incident', West Midlands Police said today.
A police spokeswoman said it was 'too early to tell' whether it was directly connected to this weekend's disturbances in the Lozells area of the city.

She said the incident had been voluntarily referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission after firearms officers were called to the area.
