Two people questioned over a double shooting at a house in the West Midlands have been released on bail.

Ambulance crews found a 43-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman with gunshot wounds in Laneside Gardens, Walsall, shortly after 01:30 BST on Friday.

Paramedics tried to revive them but they died at the scene.

A man, 23, and woman, 22, were arrested on suspicion of murder and questioned by West Midlands Police. They have been bailed pending further inquiries.

The victims have not been formally identified and a police spokesman said post-mortem examinations would take place later.

Supt Keith Fraser, head of crime and operations for Walsall, said: "Our thoughts are with the family of the victims at this difficult time.

"We cannot underestimate the impact an incident like this has on the community but I would reassure local people that they have nothing to fear with regard to their own safety as we are treating this as an isolated incident."
