Main article content
We are today, Monday 11th July, continuing to appeal for information following a shooting in Croxteth last night (Sunday).
A 23 year-old man was in Cubert Road, at around 7.15pm when an unknown offender is reported to have fired shots in his direction, hitting him multiple times in the legs.
It is thought the offender may have been on a pedal cycle which made towards Croxteth Hall Lane.
The man remains in hospital where he is being treated for his injuries, which are not believed to be life threatening.
An investigation is underway and forensic, house-to-house and CCTV enquires have been carried out in the local area.
Detective Inspector John Mullen said: “We are continuing to appeal for witnesses or anyone with information about this incident to come forward.
“We know the impact reckless incidents like this have on our communities but we believe that members of the public are also key to solving this and taking criminals off our streets.
“If you have information about who was responsible for last night’s shooting, or know anyone who carries, stores or uses firearms, then please contact us so that we can take positive action.
“I would continue to appeal to anyone living in the area of Cubert Road who saw anyone or anything suspicious or captured anything significant on their dash cam, doorbell camera or mobile phone to contact us as soon as possible.”
