Witness Appeal following shooting in Stockbridge Village, Merseyside

MERSEYSIDE Police are appealing for witnesses following an injury shooting in Stockbridge Village on Monday, 1 June 2015. Shortly before 1.30am Officers were called to Boydell Close following reports that a 31 year old man had been shot in the leg. Merseyside Police said that:- "It is believed that the victim had been arguing with 2 men on his doorstep and during the argument was shot by 1 of the men, who then ran off. The victim sustained serious wounds to his leg, which are consistent with being shot with a shotgun, and he was taken to hospital where his condition is described as serious. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening. The scene has been cordoned off for forensic examination and house to house inquiries will be carried out. High visibility patrols have been stepped up in the area to reassure the local community. The investigation is in its early stages and at this stage the motive for the shooting is unknown, although it is believed that this is a targeted attack. Detectives are appealing to anyone who may have information about the shooting to contact them." Anyone who can help the Police with their investigation in to the shooting can contact the specialist Matrix team on:- 0800 230 0600, or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
