Police investigating a shooting in Litherland on New Years Day continue their appeal for information

Detectives investigating a shooting in Litherland on New Year’s Day (Saturday 1 January) are continuing their appeal for information.

A spokesperson from Merseyside Police said: “At around 7.10pm we received a report that a 33-year-old man had been shot to the torso at a car park at the Netherton pub on Church Road as he entered a car.”

“He was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.”

”Further enquiries have revealed that the offender who was reported to be around 5ft 6in tall and was wearing a light grey or blue jacket, arrived and left the Netherton Pub on foot. He left, heading in the general direction of Litherton Moss Primary School, crossing Dunnings Bridge Road.”

“Officers are continuing to carry out forensic, CCTV, house-to-house and witness enquiries, and to speak to the local community.”

“At this stage, the shooting is believed to have been targeted.”

Detective Chief Inspector Rachel Wilson said: “This was a reckless and dangerous act of violence that could have left a man gravely injured and we hope he makes a fully recovery from this frightening incident.”

“The use of firearms in our communities can have catastrophic consequences and will not be tolerated which is why we are continuing to appeal to residents or anyone we have not yet spoken to who witnessed the incident, or saw or heard anyone acting suspiciously in the area on New Years Day at around 7.10pm to contact police.”

“If you were passing the area in a vehicle and have dashcam or CCTV footage, that could help us find the person who did this please let us know.”

“Through intelligence from our communities and a number of proactive policing operations and tactics, we have seen a decrease in firearms incidents over the past two years.”

“We’re determined to keep preventing them from happening so that our communities can continue to live, work and enjoy going out of an evening free from the fear of such incidents.”
