A murder investigation is under way after a man in his 30s was gunned down in Liverpool city centre.

Emergency services were called to Holy Cross Close at about 8pm on Thursday to reports of shots being fired.

On arrival, police discovered the victim who was pronounced dead at the scene.


The man’s family have been informed but he is yet to be formally identified, said Merseyside Police.

Detectives are keeping an open mind as to the motive of the attack as forensic examinations continue and CCTV from the area is checked.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Earl said: “The investigation into this incident is in its very early stages and we are keen to speak to anyone who may have information which could help us establish the full circumstances and find those responsible.

“You may have seen or heard suspicious behaviour in the area of Holy Cross Close and any information, no matter how small, could prove crucial as we seek to establish what happened and bring those responsible to justice.

“I want to reassure the public that we will thoroughly investigate any information given to us so we can put anyone who carries guns on our streets behind bars and would appeal to anyone who may have seen the incident itself, or who has any information about it, to please get in contact.”
