Appeal for information after shots fired in Croxteth
Main article content
We are appealing for information after we received reports that shots had been fired in Croxteth last night (Monday, 23 May).
We received a call from a member of the public who said shots had been fired by a man on foot towards a grey transit van on Falmouth Road just after 6.30pm.
The investigation is in its early stages and at this time there are no reports of any injuries. Early examination has been carried out on Falmouth Road opposite Newdown Road.
The offender was last seen making off through the park on to Dodman Road and then on to Mullion Road, Croxteth.
Crime scene investigations are being carried out along with house-to-house enquiries and officers are examining CCTV footage in a bid to identify the offender, or offenders. Officers are also out and about in the local community to provide reassurance to the local community.
Detective Inspector John Mullen, said: “I would urge anyone who was in the area at around 6.30pm on Monday, 23 May, who witnessed the incident, or who have any information to come forward.
“I would also like to appeal to anyone who has CCTV, dashcam or footage on any other devices to take the time to check them to see if they have captured any footage that could help us find those responsible.
“Firing a gun in a residential street is extremely reckless and dangerous and shows a total disregard for the safety of local residents."
