Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
Coventry has suffered from approximately 40 (intel quality varies) violent, firearms and knife related incidents in the past three months linked to C2/RB7 gang tensions and other disputes involving member of organised criminal groups attacking each other. Although longstanding, these incidents have increased in severity and frequency. There have been series of attempted murders, woundings (by shooting/stabbing) and firearms discharges involving C2/RB7 groups which are well documented, as is the view that West Midlands Police may be unaware of a high volume of other matters which have occurred which have not been formally reported.  It is my assessment is that there continues to be on-going tensions and there is the strong possibility that further violence/firearms discharges will occur in the Wood End area of Coventry. It is of note that two of the three most recent discharges have occurred over the weekend between the hours 2100-0000hrs.
