Car damaged by suspected firearms discharge

MERSEYSIDE Police are continuing to appeal for information following reports of gunshots being heard at the Junction of Condron Road North and Robinson Road, Litherland, on Sunday, 2 April 2017, at around 9.55pm. Following a search of the area, Police Officers located a Toyota car that had damage consistent with a firearms discharge.  Nobody was in the car at the time of the incident and initial enquiries have not identified anyone that was injured as a result of this incident.  An investigation is currently underway and house to house and CCTV enquiries are ongoing in the local area.  Detective Inspector Jimmy Belmar said:- "We are in the process of establishing exactly what happened and I would like to assure local residents that we will be in the community carrying out positive action during the coming days. It was reported a man described as white, aged around 25 years, with dark hair and dark clothing stepped out of a silver/grey hatchback car on Robinson Road and shot in the direction of the Toyota car which was parked on Condron Road North. The man then got back into the car and drove from Robinson Road onto Kirkstone Road North in the direction of Church Road. If anyone saw a man matching this description acting suspiciously in the area shortly before or after 10pm last night, we would ask that they contact police. Also, if anyone saw a silver hatchback in the area, we are keen to hear from them. Any information, however small it may seem, could prove vital to our enquiries. Tackling the issue of gun crime is a top priority for the whole of the force and there is extensive work going on daily, targeting those people we suspect of bringing guns onto the streets. But we need our communities to stand alongside us and give information about where guns are being stored and who is involved in gun crime. You can call our dedicated hotline or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously. Information from our communities is vital in identifying those responsible and bringing them to justice, enabling us to take people these people and their weapons off the streets."  Anyone with any information that could help the Police investigation is asked to call the 'Gun Crime Hotline' on:- 0800 230 0600 or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
