The raids came after a vehicle was rammed by a car on Watsons Green Road in Dudley in August this year.

One of the people in the car then pointed a gun at the victims before driving off.

No one was injured.

The gun was originally designed to fire blanks but was capable of being transformed into a live gun, according to officers.

Three men in their 20s were arrested as a result of the raids – all under arrest on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
