Appeal for information on fifth anniversary of murder of Aaron Lewis
Main article content
We are today, Tuesday 1st February, continuing to appeal for information on the fifth anniversary of the death of a 26 year-old man in Wavertree.
At around 7pm on Wednesday 1st February 2017, police were called to Grosvenor Road, following reports that a man had been shot outside Anna Jung’s chip shop.
When officers arrived at the scene they found the victim, Aaron Lewis, suffering from serious gunshot wounds.
He was taken to Aintree Hospital where he was sadly pronounced dead a short while later.
Arrests have previously been made in connection with Aaron’s murder but nobody has been charged.
Detective Chief Inspector Cath Cummings said: “Five years is a long time for Aaron’s family to live without knowing the answer to who killed their loved one.
“The killer is still walking the streets but deserves to be behind bars for ending the life of a young man in his prime and causing heartache for his family and friends.
“We know that within our communities there are people who know what went on that evening and who was involved. I would say to them – come forward and tell us what you know so that the family can start to properly grieve for their loss and justice is served.
“If this was a member of your family you would want someone to speak up. Any small detail could be the key to this investigation, however insignificant you think it may be. If you feel afraid to speak to us directly then give your information anonymously to Crimestoppers.
“Merseyside Police remains committed to keeping our communities safe and targeting gun and serious crime. There is no place in our city for firearms or those who use them to cause fear in our communities but we need the public to help us in our fight to get guns off our streets.
“I would ask anyone who has any information which could assist with this investigation to contact us.”
Anyone who has any information which could help detectives with their enquiries is asked to DM @MerPolCC, or contact the @CrimestoppersUK line anonymously on 0800 555 111.
