Police on scene after shots fired at Wavertree house

Merseyside Police officers are currently in Birch Grove, Wavertree, following reports shots were fired at a house.

Police were contacted at 11.20pm last night, Thursday 21 April, following reports loud bangs had been heard. Damage was found to the front door of a property which was consistent with a gun being fired.

There were people in the property at the time but no reports of anyone being injured.

An investigation has been launched and house-to-house, CCTV and forensic enquiries are being carried out in the local area.

Detective Chief Inspector Rachel Wilson said, “Enquiries are in the very early stages as we seek to establish what happened yesterday evening.

“While no injuries have been reported, to fire a gun is extremely reckless and dangerous. I would like to reassure the local community that we are working to find those responsible and bring them to justice.

“I ask that anyone who was in the area of Birch Grove in Wavertree yesterday evening who saw or heard anything or anyone suspicious to contact us.

“Similarly, if you were driving in the Wavertree area last night and have dash cam footage, please check it and let us know if you captured anything significant.

“Whether you come forward to us directly or anonymously, through Crimestoppers, please tell us what you know to help us remove dangerous weapons and those who use them from our streets.”

Anyone with information is asked to DM @MerPolCC or @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference 22000274290.
