A MAN has been arrested after a gun was fired during an early-hours row in Oldbury.

The man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm after police were called to a dispute in Vicarage Road at 4am this morning (Saturday May 29).

A stretch of Vicarage Road was cordoned off this morning while officers searched the area.

A house was also being searched. 

Specialist teams have been searching the road, looking under cars and in drains for evidence, and neighbours have been interviewed.
