Teenager in hospital after 'targeted' shooting

“We are in the early stages of an investigation into a shooting which has left a young man injured,” Merseyside Police DI Yoseph Al-Ramadhan said. “We understand the fear that gun crime causes and I’d like to assure the community that we think this was a targeted attack, one which we’re thoroughly investigating.

“Firearms have no place on the streets of Merseyside and we remain committed to removing them and the people who choose to carry them. It is absolutely vital that we get all information from those communities who feel the impact of gun crime, so we can bring those responsible to justice.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the Beechwood Estate area who saw anything or anyone suspicious to come forward and let us know. Similarly if you were driving on Fender Way and have dashcam footage then please review it and tell us if you see anything. Information you hold could be vital to our investigation.

“Speak to our officers directly or come forward anonymously and we will take swift action to remove dangerous weapons and those who use them from our streets.”

The public can make reports to Merseyside Police via the force’s website.
