Detectives investigating the murder of 22-year-old Sam Rimmer in Dingle have arrested two people following warrants carried out today, Thursday 30 March.
At 11.40pm on 16 August 2022, Sam was in 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.
A total of five warrants across South Liverpool and Huyton were executed this morning and resulted in two people being arrested. They are:
A 22-year-old man from Dingle, arrested on suspicion of murder
A 21-year-old man from Netherley, arrested on suspicion of murder
Both have been taken to police stations to be interviewed.
Detective Inspector John Holden said, “This brings the total of arrests in connection with the murder of Sam to six as this extensive investigation continues.
“I’d urge anyone who holds information and has yet to come forward to please do so. Please don’t assume with the passage of time that we already have this information or make a guess as to how significant it might be. Our detectives will assess this and take the appropriate action.”
