Suspect sought in Woodchurch shooting incident

Detectives have issued a CCTV image of a man who could have information that may assist with their enquiries following a report in June that shots were fired in Woodchurch.

At around 6.45pm on Wednesday 8 June 2022, reports were received that three men ran into a pub on Arrowe Park Road shouting shots were fired at them.

No one was reported injured during the incident.

Following enquiries, detectives have issued a CCTV image of a man they believe could assist with their investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul McVeigh said, “Thankfully nobody was injured on this occasion, but firing a gun in a street is extremely reckless and could have resulted in tragic circumstances, which we are sadly all very much aware of.

“This incident took place on a busy main road and I would appeal to anyone who saw something which will help us identify the suspects to please contact us. Any information you can give, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, could be vital and help bring the offender to justice.

“I am also appealing to the man featured in this image, or anyone who recognises him to come forward. We believe he could hold information that could be vital to our continuing enquiries.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact @MerPolCC on Twitter or ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook with reference 22000395897.
