The cordon was in place until Monday, March 6, while officers carried out forensic, CCTV, house-to-house and witness enquiries.
Detective Chief Inspector John Fitzgerald said: "Enquiries are in the very early stages to establish what has taken place and the victim’s family have been made aware. Lodge Lane would have been busy at the time of this incident, and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at around 10.30pm onwards and saw what happened to please contact us.
"I would also ask people who were in the area to check dashcam or CCTV footage just in case they may have captured something which may be vital to the case.”
DCI Fitzgerald added: "Reducing knife crime in Merseyside is a priority all year round. Our officers are committed in removing anyone who stores, carries and uses weapons through proactive use of stop and search powers, open land searches, warrants and education work alongside partners.
"We continue to seek out those involved in knife crime, enticing young and vulnerable people to carry weapons or involved in gangs."
