Detectives investigating the murder of 22-year-old Sam Rimmer from Liverpool have arrested a fourth man on suspicion of murder. At 11.40pm on 16 August 2022, Sam was on Lavrock Bank with a group of friends, when two electric bikes, drove into the cul-de-sac and fired a number of shots towards the group. As a result Sam was injured and despite the best efforts of officers and ambulance staff he was sadly pronounced dead a short while later at hospital. Today, a 23-year-old man from Liverpool has been arrested on suspicion of Sam’s murder. He is being interviewed by detectives. Three males aged 21, 20 and 17 from Liverpool who were also arrested on suspicion of murder have since been bailed. An investigation continues and CCTV, witness and forensic enquiries have been carried out. A scene remains in place in the area. Detective Inspector John Holden said: “Although we have made several arrests across Liverpool our enquiries remain ongoing. “I would ask anyone who lives in the area of Lavrock Bank, or were passing through at about 11.40pm on Tuesday 16 August, to please contact police. You may have seen something that could be vital for us and I would urge you to get in touch.
